How to Create Your Own Custom Action Figures. Action figures pique human imagination and offer a vehicle to escape into the unknown recesses of the mind enabling the creation of a world that at times defies reason and the physical limitations of everyday living. From superheroes to super-villains from knights in armor to dungeons and dragons from galactic space cadets to alien troops from warrior soldiers to ninjas from a dizzying array of characters anyone can identify with an alter-ego in a face-off with their supreme nemesis. By extension almost every person might find themselves creating action figures fashioned if not with their own hands with their minds. After all what could be more enjoyable than playing with one`s own uniquely created action figure toy through which one could experience adventure and the imagined without bodily risk?
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.
