Yeah. I think I'm done posting here at Deviant Art. I don't see very much TF customs here anymore. I don't get any feedbacks from anyone when I post. I also don't see any real difference in my Ebay auctions whether I post them here or not. It's very time consuming to select, crop, and resize the pics of my customs to post them here when I can just post all of the pics on my Facebook page. If you want to follow me, just friend request me on my Facebook page here. I've been posting newer customs there lately anyway.

Don't have or want to use Facebook, then this is farewell. I guess I'll come to DA to look at nudey pics. Later.

I will not delete any of the pics. I will keep the account open. Just won't post anything new.

Thanks so much for the fav! 😆

This is purely hypothetical: If I were to commission you to paint a DotM Leader Sentinel Prime and simply give it a truer, more vibrant red (as opposed to the dull, pinkish color Hasbro gave him), how much would you charge? There would be no washes or metallic scuff marks, or any realistic embellishments like that - just a repaint of the red parts. I know it's not a simple job. I'm a toy customizer too, just not nearly as good as you.

Thanks in advance.

Sorry for the late reply. I'm not sure how much but it sounds like you may want a customizer that uses air brushes. for that vibrant look. I don't air brush.

Love your work!
I do some custom repaints myself every now and then and I have encountered a tiny problem, which I require a bit of advice:
The paint(I use acrylics and enamels) often scrapes off at the TF figure's joints, and at every other area where there is possible friction between two parts. I've tried priming and coating them before, but it doesn't seem to work very well as it continues to be a major problem. I don't fiddle with them much, but as soon as I pose them for a photo, the paint scrapes off.

I'm sure most TF customisers have experienced this problem before, and I was wondering what's your advice to countering this?

Thanks! :D
Solrac333 Featured By Owner Jul 24, 2013
You have to sand the joints down. Make sure that you also clean the figure withe soap and water before you paint too.
Kurenai-Misuzu Featured By Owner Jul 25, 2013
Ah, I see! Shall try that! Thanks for the advice! :)
