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.
Shape each accessory or feature using your selected implements and referring to your drawings as you go. Clay carvers a knife or other implements can be used to shape the Apoxie®Sculpt or move it in the direction you wish. You may need to make several attempts until you get just the look that you desire. Once you are satisfied with the result let the compound dry and cure. If you have used the Apoxie®Sculpt for a removable accessory let it cure detached from your action figure so that it does not become permanently attached. If you have small parts that need to be glued to the action figure use a super glue. There are many different good brands of super glue from which to choose.
