very nice! Love some droids I do.

I am getting ready to do a custom droid and since you have done one, let me ask a question.

1. Do you primer the figures before painting?
2. Do you use acrylics or enamels?

That's it. Good job on the custom!

I didnt prime this figure because I didnt want to lose any of the small details, some figures you dont have to prime but others will not hold paint very well and have to be primed.

As for paint I chose to use Sanford Paint pens, you can find these at lowe's. The paint in the pens leaves the figure slightly tacky so I had to spray him with Testors Dull cote to dry him out, It dulled the collor quite a bit (I didnt retake the pic after I sprayed him) so you might want to try the gloss coat if you want a really shiney surface.

Definalty try and use acrylic paints whenever you can as the Enamels tend to stay wet and will rub off.

A clean droid is a LAZY droid. Tell that little turkey to get to work...preferably on something greasy!

This is really nice. The paint looks flawless. Great work there! TTYS!
