That's the technique I use now for curing sculpty. I microwave a cup of water for three minutes and then put the figure in the boiling water for at least five minutes. It works great and I never have a melted mess.

If I can't find some brown cloth or leather, I'll sculpt it. Cloth would work better over the jointed arm.

 I cure my sculpy in boiling water on the stove - 3 minutes for thin pieces attached to figures.  No permenant damage yet. 

As far as leather goes. I've picked up some vinyl table cloth material at Joanne Fabrics.  It looks like it would work pretty well for faux leather.  It may be bit too stiff for this custom though.

I think this will look great once she's done and can you get these micro figures in male form. 

And M_P can you get a closer look at the head shot or send me a few pics of teh head to hemble@zip.com.au and I'll see what colours would be a good match.

Yeah microman figs are what Grego makes his super articulated troops out of.

this is going to be really interesting Phurby. i still am not quite sure if i totally like the microman/woman bodies yet...the articulation is incredible, they still look a little strange to me the way the joints are "exposed".

i would definitely use a little sculpy & if you could get your hands on some scrap leather it would work really well for her pouch & tassel thingys. i've got a whole big bag of scrap leather, the real stuff no vinyl crapola...PM me & i can send some scraps to you if you want some for this project.

Thanks Ripley, I'll take whatever you can spare.

How is this for a close up to judge colors on?

I think I'd try a GW's Enchanted Blue base, mixed with GW's Skull White to match the lightness.

They used to  have a light blue paint, Lightning Blue or somesuch, that might have been an even better match, but the Enchanted Blue should work better than GW's Ultramarine Blue, in my opinion.

I think the "new" GW light blue is called "Ice Blue" nowadays.  I'm not sure if it's a new color or not, but I don't remember it from back in my WH40k days.

Is the terrible AT-AT walking machine.
It's as big as a house on walking legs,
and whatever it steps on it crushes like eggs.

Curse you and your misleading thread titles. >:(



I must say Phruby, forget the soft goods and such. Just find the matching shade of blue paint and you're all set. ;D

I mixed up a shade of bluish gray that I think is really close to the head color. Now show looks topless while wearing light blue pants. This is only a first cote so it needs some touch ups but all the joints are painted and the color doesn't scratch off. I have some army camoflague fabric to use for the shirt.

Very good painting so far.  The color seems to match to the head perfectly.  You may want to repaint her face with that color to ensure the match  (but it's not necessary).

Phurby, I think you're an amazing customizer, but I don't care for this microlady body customs.  They are so overly articulated that they just don't look "real" to me - way too many seams showing.

Still, I wish you luck.

Comments from Lance = Brutal Honesty!   ;)

I do like it though.  Maybe they're not my style but I would for sure buy them if Hasbro were to make them.  Excellent work Phruby.
