l Customs for sale
Journal time! What's up? What's new? Well it's 2013 and I have a brand new background for my customs. It allows for brighter colors and less glare with the new set up and works with all colors...well providing I don't make a tan-stone-colored custom. But unlike my black fabric background a figure wearing black won't disappear!
Also you know how we need clear colored paint more than the primary red, blue, yellow, etc that Tamiya and Testors has? Well I found the answer, acrylic Suncatcher paints! They sell them in sets at Walmart for $2.50 and have pink, purple, even black and neons. They dry to a super hard finish and work on all the plastics I've tried them on without making them sticky. The only downside is it takes about 3 hours to fully cure. But for energy effects they're FANTASTIC! Just take a look at my most recent Gambit custom. I'll check Michaels crafts and see if they have those colors in a bigger volume, clear purple/pink is used in a lot of X-men customs.
