  • New to customizing; here are my first pieces (works in progress)

    A couple WIP pics from some projects I'm working on. This is my first foray into serious customizing. Any tips, tricks, or advice would be greatly appreciated. Or, you know, tell me I suck. LOL!

    Looks like a bit of red paint got on She-ra. I would try removing that with hot water or a baby wipe. The swords look awesome. I really like the paint on Skeletor's sword.

      Yeah, that red paint was there when I got the head in a box o' parts many moons ago. I just never bothered to try and remove it. Thanks for the kind words about the swords. I put another coat on the Power Sword, and now it's in FF He-Man's possession again. The bone sword now has the base of the handle painted as well. I'll post new pics tomorrow!

          Just plain old Testor's metallic gold and metallic silver acrylic paint.

              Not yet, I still want to put another coat or two on. Plus I didn't know to do that, so I need to go buy some clear varnish!​ Here are a couple pics of the swords with their respective owners:

                    It's the Filmation Skeletor sword and it came with Lizard Man, I believe

                    That is the sword that comes with Lizard Man.
