repainting wrestlers

Posted in Custom Workstation

I have my Dutch body ready but he's that shiny plastic they love using for wrestlers and skin tone paint doesn't want to stick, any suggestions on how to get it to stick?

I coated him with cheap gray spray primer and several coatings of flesh tone. He's now ready for the next layers of fleshtones.

use scotch bright, it'll take away the shine and the paint will stick better aswell

Actually I was just going to take the head back off and seperate the torso from the lower body I have him on.

Just a good wash always works fine for me mate. If you are gonna take him apart I suggest painting and glue shielding the shoulder parts of the torso, the shoulder parts of the arms and the ab joint before putting it back together.

I can pop him apart fairly easy. just a pain. I actually ahve to sand part of him down for a better fit anyhow.

games workshop's chaos black works as a great primer coat. if you need a tip for a quick brush on primer.

That's just what I would do, you could try a brush on primer, might save you having to take him apart.

Wash it, then use a spray on primer. Paint over that.
