Customizing Tips and Tricks / Re: Clone Pilot helmet

I would cast it before I hollow it out.  Off the top of my head (no pun intended), I'm not sure how to caste a part that is "hollow" per se.

Good idea.  I've got a bunch of those Michael's bottles left over from another project I was working on.  They don't work well on figures but foamcore... yes maybe.  Thanks!

2658
Chewie, thanks for the advice.  What paints do you use on your foamcore dioramas?  Those little jars of Gamesworkshop paints don't go very far on big sheets :)

DD, the durge looks great!  I just took at look at the base figure (a friend has it in his office, hehehe).  Your paint job additions are great.  What a transformation!

I think your Galactic Marine head sculpt it great!  Are the legs supposed to be maroon?  Obviously as a colorblinder, take that last comment with a grain of salt  ;)  However, I thought they were supposed to be maroon.

Do most people spray paint onto the foam core or paint by hand with the acrylics we use on our figures?

2661
Chewie, I love the look of your backdrop diorama as you have it photographed.  It looks great!  I need to make a backdrop to help set my customs off a little more.  Time to get the creative juices flowing.

Maul looks great.   The tatoos came out very very well.   Did you consider adding the Grevious style legs to him to give him the look of the EU version that can be seen in the Star Wars Visionaries book?

Thought I'd post this newbie question to go along with the Monthly Project.  What tips do you have for working with Foamcore for Dioramas.  From what I've gathered, sharp hobby knifes are the key.  However, any other tips?

What about gluing options (glue gun, any others??). 

What about painting on foamcore, any special tricks (is primer necessary?)

As you can see, I hope to make this week's thread, the one shop stop for all your foamcore questions.

Phruby, I saw that same pack of figures.  I thought it would make a great Snow Bunny too.  I may go ahead and pick it up.  The $10 price tag turned me off.  I'm not sure what I'd use the other figures for.

Star Wars Action Figures / Re: New Customs by the Findswoman

I'm also not familar with the "King".

I really like the Padme nightgown although the joints on the sholders look a little loose.  Which Padme head is that?  I'm not good with identifying body parts yet  ;)

Telfien is my favorite.  The robes look great.  Are those hand stiched or taken from some other figure? 

I've never been a fan of snaggletooth but your version looks really good.

Your carded work always amazes me.  I love the details you put into these.  What sort of labels do you use to make the cards and inserts?

Customizing Tips and Tricks / Re: Matte vs. Flat

Gamesworkshop sells a "paint" called Hardcoat.  It is water based coating that leaves the figures very shiny.  I was told that if you water it down, the shininess will diminish.  You might try something like that, although I'd try it on a different figure first!

2668
Maybe I missed it, but I didn't see the Darth Plaguies (sp?) photo

Customs Community and Group Projects / Re: Special project question

When do you think it will be done?  Will it be a fan fic character, or a redo of an existing character?  Have you already decided on who it will be?

Maybe it could be a "travel trooper" - a clone/stormtrooper w/ a tourist camera and a suitcase?   ;)

 :P

Maybe he should have a suitcase, or at least come packed in one.  Each customized can add a travel bumper sticker to it!

I love the update.  I like the Gran.  I want to make more generic aliens like these. 

It kills me, how quickly you guys are able to identify body parts from some many sources.  I can tell I'm a rookie at this!
