naisor (2 years ago) #2611134The sealing coat is a suggestion; to help it resist degradation. If you plan to move the twin-tails with ball joints, I'm concerned that the basic putty will not with stand the stress. A more durable material like epoxy will help better. you can use epoxu putty from tamiya (the yellow one) to sculpt better once is set.
Also, I'm concern that the large chuck of basic putty you place might fall-off with time.


thanks for the suggestion,, maybe i'll redo that part man wouldn't want all that effort to fall off..

Hikaruharu17 (2 years ago) #2611467Oh wow, Mika is perfect for the custom. Good luck!

-invi- (2 years ago) #2610955new to customizing don't know the sealer coat you've mentioned..
i only used the basic putty on the back of the head, used epoxy putty for the other parts eg fringe socks and jacket..

naisor (2 years ago) #2610872I don't know if tamiya base putty will actually help you with scultiping fine details. I have used it only to fill gaps on some models and large chunks after curing are seriously brittle in my exprience. Have you or are you considering to put some sealing coat over the putty to harden and protect your work?
Also, I think that the more suitable material for this job is epoxy putty (tamiya makes those too). Especially for action figures which are more required to withstand strees that statue figure.
