Shoulder Joint Protection
Hey all, back with another tutorial that I hope you'll find useful. This time I'm gonna show you how I tackle the age old problem of shoulder paint rub, so without further ado, I'm gonna explain the first picture which is what you will need.
2.Brush on superglue
4.Rotary tool bits
5.Dremmel or rotary tool
7.Screwdrivers or similar objects
8.Pliers or clamp to hold your pieces while heating them
Also the obvious stuff such as water (to wash your brushes)and newspaper (to protect your work area).
Some parts of this tutorial can be a bit tricky to get right so if you're unsure I recommend practicing on some junk figures first.
I should also mention that not all shoulder balls are the same, some DC figures have an extra soft plastic ring moulded onto the shoulder ball, this soft plastic ring fits inside the hard plastic disc and can make this method pretty difficult. Just check first by heating up the ball and prying the two halves apart slightly using a blunt object.
After all this and a complete paint job I seal my customs with Games Workshop Satin purity seal or Vallejo Satin Purity seal, there are other brands but these are the only ones i've used. As stated above this will get rid of the shine caused by the superglue.
I hope you found this tutorial useful, any questions just leave a comment and i'll do my best to answer them.
