I've had a set of the 2012 Turtles sitting around for months, so i decided i should probably go ahead and paint them. Nothing exciting here here. These guys were the least fun figures to prep that i've done in a long, long time. Damn those waxy weapons. Only work outside of the paint and sanding was sculpting their feet into just two toes, and resculpting Leos mouth to make him appear more stoic.

I'm planning on repainting my set, could you answer some questions for me by any chance?

How did you paint the waxy weapons so that the paint would stick?

Did you remove the straps and paint them seperately and if so, what is the best way to remove and reattach them?

Thank you!

Awesome! I love that you actually sculpted Leo a new mouth rather than switching heads with Donatello.

Thanks man. Yeah, I like how the Don/Leo head switch looks, but I wanted to do something different with it.

These are really cool bro, great work. Question, how the hell did you get paint to stay on those weapons? I ended up scrapping the weapons and using fodder for my slash.
Whiskeytango - Friday, February 1, 2013
Thanks Xysma. Getting paint to stay on was a combination of sanding, priming, and coating in superglue. Sanded down all the surfaces on them, used duplicolor vinyl and fabric dye spray (you can get it at automotive stores), and then coated them in superglue by putting a dab on a ziplock bag, and then rubbing it on. Glue for whatever reason doesn't really stick to ziplock bags, and it lets you apply it very thinly.

Leos mouth sculpt looks great, what kinds of greens did you use for the turtles?
Whiskeytango - Thursday, January 31, 2013
thanks man. All citadel paints, base coated with Duplicolor Vinyl and Fabric dye spray. Leo was camo green. Raph was warpstone glow. Don was castellan green. Mike was Waaagh! Flesh. They were all washed with several different shades after that.
