New To Customizing!

Posted in Custom Workstation

Hello Guys! I have been looking around and have decided that id like to start Customizing some figures. But, I would like to know what all id need to get started. Mainly types of tools and what not. Id also like to know where you guys get most of your stuff. Thank you so much. Every little bit helps!

It's safe to say that you will need a nice starter kit of paints(I suggest model masters to start with because there easy to find and use), some kind of a sculpting compound(take your pick there are many out there and different people prefer different compounds for a variety of reasons), and some basic sculpting tools from a hobby shop. A dremmel tool is also very nice, I used to do customs without one but since I got one it speeds up the process tenfold!

Check out the tutorials area. There is a wealth of helpful knowledge there: It's hard to know what you'll need to get started without knowing what kind of customs you are going to be working on, but these are the basics: Best of luck
