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.
Once you have selected the candidate base body give it a thorough cleaning removing the manufacturer`s oil and powder and any grime dust or lose particles. Careful washing with soap and water and then scrubbing with something slightly abrasive like fine sandpaper or a toothbrush will do the job. Be sure to give the crevices a good cleaning as well to assure that your customized accessories and features as well as the paint will adhere properly. When working in the sink be sure to securely cover all the holes so that any loose parts cannot stray and disappear down the drain with the running water.
