Paint Question

Posted in Custom Workstation

I'm new to the posts and have a question about paints. I'm painting a spider-man right now and his arms and body dries normal, but his feet are still sticky and wet. I painted him about 6 days ago. Is there a finish or something that can help?

Thanks

Well I was trying to repaint a movie spidey to make it look like spider-man 3 figure.


So I'll just wash it and go over it in acrylics.

You can probably just scrub it off. It isn't really dry anyway.

Base rules:
Wash first
Acrylics only

Scrape off the enamel if you can, or sand it off because the stickiness might mess up your brush!

Wash your figures roughly and thuroughly with soap and water before yo paint them. It helps the paint stick better.
