While today`s action figure toys are generally manufactured in large assembly lines it is possible to create one`s own action figure toy by hand. This article describes the materials tools and steps to take to customize your own action figures. Draw and design your action figure character or model your action figure after a character or person that closely resembles your action figure concept. Finalize the concept of your action figure and create illustrations of it from several different angles and perspectives. If you have your concept firmly captured you will be less likely to stray and suffer rework because of changes in design on the fly.
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.
