First custom made, learned everything from Figurerealm - Great Site I stumbled upon!!!
Pro: Came out looking as I had pictured Cons: Not enough sanding on joints; minor joint rub
Sanded the entire figure, removed cape.
Sanded off/down side abs, boot indentations, and belt from figure as well as all the original joints.
Used Apoxie Sculpt for chest modification as well as reducing muscle tone in calves and side abs.
Head was also created with Apoxie Sculpt lain over the original head.
Much sanding with dremel tool to desired outcome.
Used acrylic paint in an air brush tool (decided to skip the primer). About 3-5 coats, original coat was silver, followed by clear gold.
