I had the Iron Spiderman, it had no paint job and looked like plastic.

I repainted him and gave him a hard coat gloss finish.

It really took me a while to like this version of Peter Parker.

I know it sounds bizzare, but it has been widely used on plastic aircraft/vehicle models in the US. it provides a very glossy finish and solid paint that won't chip easily. you should try using it, and it works for airbrushes too!(thinning might be necessary.)
back to the figure, I want to do this because I don't really have paint around my house..and no real painting expereince.

hmm... is there a reason not to use floor polish? is it because of the material that it is applied to? I ask since I have not heard anything negative about it so far(other than rumors that it might dissolve plastic?) I want to use floor polish since from what I've heard it does not rub off as easily as normal clear coats. Heavier play might be involved for me?

never heard of floor polish being used on customs...

I see..well judging from your experience with the figure, if you could remember, would a high gloss coat on the whole figure make it look better in your opinion? Sorry to be asking stuff from quite a while ago.

No prob. I love talking figures. It's my thing. I don't recommend floor polish. Use games workshop hard coat gloss. Do 2 thin layers, but fyi, I think I glossed the whole thing lightly, with extra on the gold parts.

hey man! Nope. Sorry dude, all my figures minus some old ones before I learned to paint...are spray painted white and then completely repainted. He was painted from white all the way up!

Did you only give it a gloss coat and not painting the gold parts?
if so it looks easy to do it with pledge floor polish on the hasbro iron spider, which I am thinking about picking up if I can achieve this look too myself!

awesome looking paintjob that is (hopefully simple)
