Used the dye method to prep the body in black. Soaked her out to ditch the excess dye and let her dry for more than a week as I worked on other projects. Tested the body in water to make sure the dye wasn't going to bleed any more and when it didn't I set to work. I dry brushed the entire body a light brown first, then painted her using a home made yellow mixture. I layered that in very thin coats, then air brushed some light orange for shading. The shoulder pads I kinda cheaped out on and used Sinister's pads but I think they look alright over all. She was done in a trade.

I like the dye tricks mostly because it heps hide the lack of paint in joints some times. I don't always feel like sanding all of the joints in a figure and that dye helps me hide that a LOT better without compromising the figure's final appearance.

Thanks! Yellow used to be a lot more daunting to work with, but not so much of an issue any longer.

Thanks! I LOVE the Hasbro female bodies for customizing from! A lot of folks dis Hasbro all the time, but I LOVE their Legends more than the vast majority of the ToyBiz Legends.
