BTW, branjita, do you know how I can use sand paper in any way when it comes to painting? My plans for the SSJ god custom I am making of Goku is getting ready, but I forgot that I got a big ass package full of sand papers that I still to this day haven't used, and I wonder if I fullfil that by using it somehow when it comes to painting.... Or is sand paper not needed in any way when it comes to acrylic painting customization?
It's not very necessary or useful. It's difficult to use sand paper on small figures. A sanding block for fingernails is more useful. As for whether you need it for painting, no, you shouldn't need it for painting anything unless you want to make that part thinner.
i initially try to paint the logo and red ribbon text on a small hat. The logo isn't quite good and the text is horrible.
So i decided to get a laser print transparent decal, photo below shows the first time i was testing the text decal with a badly painted logo.
Here i repaint the whole thing yellow again and applied the decal, i had to paint a little white beneath the decal because its transparent. After that i sprayed another layer of clear acrylic paint to sealed the ink. The lacquer seems to dissolve the decal too. I might buy the white decal and test a goku logo.
very interesting...it looks incredible. I'm surprised that decals work so well. I'd really like to see this with your Android 13 custom and I'd also like to see the Goku you mentioned if you add a logo to it.
Would you guys know of a paint color that looks like the paint on turles armor in this pic? the type of paint I am going to be using is delta ceramcoat acrylic paint but I just can't find the right paint color...
I was trying to find the plastic epoxy in the double tubes that you recommend in the sticky, but I cant seem to find it. All I see are the Loctite syringe ones and the black plastic welder by Devcon. I see some high-end ones in the hobby-shop web stores specifically made for toys, but they're little expensive, and I know that these other ones will work just as good for a lot less coin. By any chance, do you know where i could fine some tubes at a decent price?
