Hey, I'm new to looking in to custom making some figures for my collection and had a question. Is this different sculpt material then apoxie? and if so which do you prefer?

To whoever doesn't work with Apoxie Sculpt, DO IT! I love the stuff and can't believe I managed to even customize without it! The stuff works like a dream. It seriously is the best.

I did not know if you were joking or not but after I bought the apoxie I litterally said "Jin satom sent me"

You might have to get two of the same figure, so you can use the lower torso from one and the upper torso from another.

this isn't directly related to this tutorial but it could be it's second cousin. has anyone attempted to add an ab crunch to a figure that doesn't have one? A dc direct figure for example? I'd think it just require drilling a hole horizontally thru the abs and then cutting a |-| shape thru the upper torso after separating the two halves of the figure,then using a rod of some sort (piece of a metal hanger comes to mind) to give it the pivot it'd need.

 None, really. I pretty much always start with the base color I need to have, in this case black. A standard black paint, not some special type. But if you're looking for primers, Citadel has a good line of those, I believe it's called Foundation.

Love the Tutorial, but I have one question:
What type of primer do you normally use?
Thanks

on a DCUC figure... Is there any way you can just swap the legs from the knee down without having to cracking the figure open?

 Yeah, it was arms for a wrestling figure. It also might have been the super sculpy clay.

 I use Testors and usually they work fine for me, but I have experienced something odd with it not drying properly on the soft rubber plastic like Sota Street fighter hands. Is your custom soft plastic?

Walkr - Wednesday, July 3, 2013
I used testors and the figure I had didn't dry for over a year, the citadel paint went on good but it came off super easy. I didn't use primer of any kind so maybe that has something to do with it. Help would be very much appreciated, I've been stuck for a while.

 I also had this problem, specially with rubber parts or soft plastic . I 'll try coating them with another layer of paint to see if it helps with removing the sticky layer...another solution could be using a little turpentine (aguarraz) to remove it ...

 Sota Street fighters are boil and pop. Boil them in 30-45 second intervals and don't leave them in the pot. Tongs help. Once you've done that and it's somewhat pliable, push the ab rod through. The pelvis on most will pop out as well. the shoulders will pop out but you can wrap a string around the inside of the joint between the shoulder ball and torso twist it around a screwdriver until it pops or just use the string to pull straight out. Do not drill the torso. It is a solid piece. A few are made of a harder plastic and take a lot of work such as Zangief.

This is one of the BEST tutorials in here due to the clarity of it and how often this kind of repair is needed by toy collectors AND custom work alike. Excellent work.

 Hm. Thanks, I won't try that. I'd used it to swap arms and legs but hadn't tried on putty.

VariablePenguin - Wednesday, January 30, 2013
 I'm not sure that using a heat gun would be a good idea. There is so much heat generated by one that it would probably warp or melt the figure underneath.

Can Sculpey be hardened with a heat gun? Thanks from a noob, both to this board and customizing in this style, to everyone for the helpful tutorials and tips .

Does anyone have suggestions for adding a cut waist to a figure that doesn't have one? Would the screw technique work? Or a piece of a coat hanger? Though that doesn't have the mushroom effect...
