    I use testors acrylic paint. Testors is a good brand but you can use any brand of paint. Acrylic paint easily washed off if you make a mistake. If you use enamel it will dry sticky and will leave streaks. You might want to look at ffurg. It a great source on custom figure painting.

    Be not afraid of any man, no matter what his size. When danger threatens call on me, and I will equalize.

    Be wary of the man who only has one gun...for he probley knows how to
    use it.

    I agree with DK on using acrylics but do check out ffurg.com for more info.

    Hi mm74md,

    What kind of customizing were you planning to do? Just a simple repaint or some major boiling and poping?

    Just wondering

    Just a simple repaint. I took a Kit Fisto & removed the head & hands. I replaced the hands with Saga Qui-Gon & the head of POTF2 Weequay. I need(ed) to paint the hands.

    Also wanted a yellow clone commander.

    Weequay style Jedi (with Clone Wars Kit Fisto in the back). The hands look fine in person but the flash made them look too light. Plus I don't know what's up with my camera & the blurry pics today!

    I enjoyed the Weequay custom. Keep up the good work.
