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.
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.
