Does anyone know how the Japan's Magical Remodeling is done?

On Japanese websites, I can see locally customized PVC figures (not resins) and they are titled "魔改造品" which means Magical Remodeling. The Magical Remodeled figures look really great such as this one

XRaptor7 (1 month ago) #41995685I don't know whether I should reprimand the [apparent] lack of responsibility in writing a guide that you've never followed or be impressed by the level of detail going on in it...
I'll go with the latter.


As said, I’ve done custom work before that involved taking knifes to figures for modifications. Plus I did see someone make that Mami into a nude so I was running off memory.

ZoidsFanatic2 (1 month ago) #41992151Well, I can write you a guide. Granted I never did anything like this before but, eh.

I'm not completely understanding the whole procedure. I thought you just make the extra parts by hand on the figure and leave it to cure and a mold is not required.
It would be awesome if you can make a guide or tutorial on this. Youtube video would be great.
Thank you very much for your replies.


Well, I can write you a guide. Granted I never did anything like this before but, eh. Seems easy enough. Also a word of warning you're heavily modifying a figure. This can damage your figure beyond repair and is irreversible. This in mind you'll need,

-Hobby Clippers or Knife (or both)
-Apoxie or Milliput.
-Primer and Top Coat
-Airbrush and brushes
-Paint
-Sandpaper

So, let's pick a figure. Now, I recommend characters in either skin-tight jump suits or swimsuits. Don't attempt this with scales who are not in revealing clothing as you'll damage them beyond repair. So for our purposes, let's work with Mami. Her swimsuit is simple to work with, ample room to spare, and she's cheap and on AmiAmi for like 1.8K yen.

So, first and foremost let's get those strings off. Using your hobby knife or clippers, you're going to cut these off. Next up, the bikini straps. Use your knife to scrape off the top layer of the plastic. While you're at it, scrape off as much "raised" parts as you can. You see, we want our Mami's bikini to be as "skin tight" as possible so we're going to remove as much plastic as we can. We want the bikini and the skin to be the same level, not raised. So now it's time to take our sandpaper and grind down the bikini. Remember, try to keep it level. And also be careful because you can remove to much of the figure by accident.

Now, next up we're going to take our milliput or apoxie and fix any knicks or scratches you might have made (and you will have made it). Wait for it to dry and sand it down. We also want to apply the putty to the gaps we might have. Again, wait for it to dry and sand it down. Now that this is done, remove Mami's head (joke intended) and we're going to apply our primer to the torso and the left arm. We're going to repaint over these areas. So, we're going to carefully sprayer the primer onto the torso and arm. We want thin layers, not heavy. Heavy layers will make the end result... really ugly. If you happen to have applied too much primer (or paint) dunk the figure into a container of Simple Green for a day or two and then remove the excess paint or primer with a toothbrush. So after you applied your primer, time to paint. I'm a hand painter (preferring brushes) but most people seem to like spray painting. So that's what we're going to do. Spray paint the primed areas, again applying light layers and not heavy. You'll want your color to match the skin tone of Mami, which will be up to you cause hell if I know! Also make sure Mami's head was removed during all of this, or at the very least protected by masking tape, tin foil, hell anything to block the paint.

Now that we sprayed Mami you should notice that the body is now uniformed and nothing really there to indicate the bikini (I'm assuming. Like said, never did this before. Someone with more experience can help). Apply our top coat and again thin layers. Now it's time for the nipples and vagina. Except I have no idea how to do a vagina. So nipples it is! Well, we'll use putty here and you're going to make them as complex or a simple as you want. Up to you how you want.

And there you go. A naked Mami you can now... maybe display. Maybe not. Likely not. Least I think that's how it's done.

ZoidsFanatic2 (1 month ago) #41974954Most Hobby Shops will carry them. Plus you can buy them online off Amazon as well. To cure them, they cure with time. You usually have a forty-five minute sculpting window before they hardern and after that it’ll be about 24 hours before they are completely cured. No heat required.

Do you think you can please give me links to those materials?

ZoidsFanatic2 (1 month ago) #41964797I’ve done some custom work before, yes. Not like that though. “Flat” tone means the skin tone lacks depth and is a uniform color throughout the figure. This tend to come from casting the figure in one color plastic and adding no shading or other paint to the skin. As for the material to mold the extra parts, more then likely Milliput and Apoxie.
I do not have a guide I am afraid.

Never mind, it was just an explanation on how to buy them. Although in the articles like this one View spoilerHide spoilerwww.nekomagic.c...they do have pictures of the steps they take, not sure that they include every step.

nopopup1 (1 month ago) #41960097Hello, thank you for your reply.
Have you tried to do the remodeling before?
What exactly do you mean by "flat" tone? And what kind of material do they use to mold the extra parts?
Is there any guide on this Magical Remodeling?
