Now you are ready for your customizations. A product like Apoxie(r)Sculpt is key in making the customizations to your action figure. Apoxie®Sculpt comes in two parts that are kneaded together to form a compound that hardens and cures in about 24 hours. It is non-shrinking and non-toxic but while it is uncured it can dissolve easily in water. The Apoxie®Sculpt instructions claim that it can be worked on for up to three hours but it is recommended that you work with it only up to two hours for best results. Other products like Green Stuff Epoxy Magic Sculpt Epoxy Clay or Fixit Epoxy Clay may also be used. In any case be sure to use a two-part compound that air-dries and self-hardens not a compound that needs to be baked in an oven because baking will deform your action figure.
After the sci-fi movie or series is premiered usually the cost of these action figures will rise. Especially if the film becomes an unanticipated commercial success. This is great because once the motion picture is popular there will be more need for their affiliated action figures however supply will already have been dried up. This is where you as a collector or investor can turn a profit big time. Merely trade your action figure back on eBay. It`s that easy. I`ve been doing it for quite a while with what I regard pieces of artistic creation that I no longer love or treasure any longer.
Take equal amounts of Part A and Part B: just enough for the feature or accessory that you are making. Part A comes in many different colors but for customizing white natural or black are recommended if you plan to paint the compound. If you choose to use a Part A that is white or natural you can add dye or powdered coloring to make your own hues of the clay. Mix Part A and Part B kneading until the two parts are homogeneous and with the consistency of clay. Before working with it let it harden a bit for about 30 minutes. Note that the compound can sit for up to 3 hours before it is no longer malleable.
