Custom Funko Pops

Posted in Custom Workstation

Hi, I wanna start making custom funko pops but was just wondering if some of the cheaper acrylic paints like apple barrel are ok for this since they don't move and will have no joint rub problems. I usually use model master but just think a bottle of that won't go very far on the bigger bodies and heads compared to Marvel legends. But if apple barrel and stuff is bad on Pops like on Legends I guess I just buy more model masters. Thanks

I've seen multiple people say that cheaper acrylic paint is fine (for Funko figures for sure, possibly for others as well) if you mix it with a few drops of water to thin it and paint on several thin coats. So far all I've done is paint one Funko figure's hair, but this method worked fine for me.

Yeah, thinning it is a must (like for airbrushing) or else it gets chunky and leaves brushstrokes. Primer also helps a ton, you can use less coats, reducing the chance for mistakes.

The thing is, the cheaper paints don't flow as well as things like Testors. The cheaper stuff is a pain to use if youre painting by hand, but its fine if you airbrush and seal it.

IF you prime and seal the figure, Apple Barrel is just fine since there isn't much moving parts.
