After washing prepare the base body removing unwanted accessories and features with pliers wire cutters an X-acto knife and a Dremel power tool with attachments as appropriate. You may need to soften areas of the body to ease this step. Run hot water over the body for 30 to 60 seconds to help make it softer and more pliable. You may repeat the hot water treatment as often as needed while you modify the base body. A nail buffer or very fine sand paper can be used to smooth and finish the body.
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.
