After the base paint is completely dry paint on the finishing details all over the entire body and head until you get the effects you are looking for and as illustrated in your concept drawings. Be careful around the joints and points of articulation as paint can hinder movement by clogging the ball-and-socket areas of the joints. Let the painted action figure dry completely. You might consider placing the action figure in direct sunlight for faster drying. Once the paint has set and is hardened move the action figure`s parts and touch-up as needed. For the a finishing effect you may want to use a coat of varnish or a satin glaze on those parts of the action figure that you want to have more sheen.
The Preservation - The preservation of collectible action figures is not a complicated process it is very simple. Actually the packaging of these toys is not made to protect them from sunlight so it is better to store your toys in a waterproof container away from windows or you can also store them in a cardboard at a place that does not allow moisture. Storing the action figures toys in the basement is also not a good idea. When you store your figure toys in the basement in a cardboard packing and if the basement gets very cold the packing may become damp and the cards will begin to bend. Storing the collectible action figures in an airtight container is necessary at places that have fluctuations in temperature.
