All details of the clothes were embossed. Since the gloves, boots, hood and belt. In theory it was supposed to be a figure very simple custom. But that was not what happened. There were three bigs challenges. The metallic paint is always a tricky thing. Another issue was the cape .I used a thor's movie cape, but it was not 100% compatible. I cut the seam of the shoulder and redid epoxy to give a better fit. And about original silver paint. It has a factory detail. It is covered with a varnish slightly stronger than the paint. To solve this I had to use a bath chemical stronger than usual. Well just say vinyl solvent and distilled water in 2:1 parts. It is very strong and I had to be careful not to melt the figure...

Questions, criticisms, comments and suggestions are always welcome.
Please see my other customs and comment about them too. Thank you.

This looks great. I love the detail and attention to the belt and boots the most.

Very sweet!! Yeah, I know exactly what you mean about melting a figure in a solvent bath. I did that once by leaving a figure in an acetone bath too long
