Sunfire Custom Action Figure

 
 
Custom #:42531  
Name:Sunfire
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Marvel Legends
Creator:libog  
Date Added:September 7, 2012
Base Figure:Yellow jacket
Height:6.00 inches
This custom was made with yellow jacket base. I yanked off shoulder fins. I sculpted mask and filled out chest and back crevices with apoxy. I shaved all the joints. Then painted. Painting with white is a pain in the butt. It's a good thing I didn't need too much. If anyone has tips in general it would be appreciated. I also had some trouble painting parallel squiggly lines around the belt area so I opted not to do it. Thanks for looking. Hope you all enjoyed it.

Nice job. That's a good mask you made.
I agree with Freddie that it's best to spray-prime the figure first. Hobby shops even sell little cans of Whiteout, a spray primer made just for these kinds of things that leaves you with an all white figure to paint on. Lots easier than trying to paint white on top of a dark color.

Thanks strange. Yeah, I think I need to spray primer with white. I have been trying to work on a storm shadow, but just can't get the white to look right.

use a good base color first. Painting white over red is not a good thing to do. Try painting the stripes grey or black first and then painting them white. Or primer your figure first with a white or grey and then use some fine line masking tape to mask off the lines if you need too. I like using liner brushes and just doing it by hand, but if you use tape it will help you some. Just some suggestions. I've made a few of these customs using the same base figure you did

Thanks man. I tried to find your custom but couldn't. I clicked on your profile and it said you've done 5 customs but I couldn't see them. I also tried searching under AoA sunfire.
