As you shape each piece work quickly as the compound may harden or be difficult to remove if it stays on your hands a long time. You may wish to use gloves because of the stickiness of the compound or wash and dry your hands frequently. Also be careful about marring or staining the surface on which you are working. Cover it before you start. The Apoxie®Sculpt can be used to adorn or change the shape of your action figure. It can be used for mustaches beards hair belts accessories face masks helmets crowns patterns designs grafting and removable weapons and accessories like capes and swords. The Apoxie®Sculpt can also be used to build up body parts like necks chests and arms. Apoxie®Sculpt can also be used to fill in undesirable holes.
Displaying the Figures - When you want to display your collectible action figures carded you can do it at a place where the sunlight is not coming directly on the figures. At a place like a recreation room you could hang them on the walls. And for loose (without packing) action figures toys a glass case or a shelf works well as long as you keep dust off them and also prevent then from sunlight.
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.
For best results let the Apoxie®Sculpt harden for at least 24 hours before painting. Prior to painting rough-buff the body and head first and then polish-buff for a smooth satiny finish. You are finally ready to paint your action figure. Study your concept pictures and drawings. Dark base paints are effective in enhancing the appearance of vibrant colors. Light base paints are best as undercoating for lighter colors.
