View Full Version : Powder's Touch-ups

05-30-2015, 07:05 PM
I've finally taken to doing some painting, nothing major, just little things. It started with Nick figures, which obviously need some additional paint at times, & I found the process so enjoyable that I've taken to doing some vintage figures too.

Mouth & spikes (Said screw it re: the mustache):

Spiked bands & knife:

Belt/buckle, leg wrappings, eyes, nails (Still have other things to do with him yet but I need more paint!):

Bracelet, earings, arrow, nipple-ring, nose bones, toe ring, ankle shackle, arm band (need paint for the grass anklet):

Roaches & white arm spikes:

Butcher knife:

Insects, stitches, & back-rat:

I look forward to doing more! :)

Those look sick, dawg.

How'd you get Napoleon already?

Thanks fellas.

Let's just say I have "friends in high places". :)

On another note I also painted Baxter's Choco Log accessory-

I always wanted to do repaints or touch ups of the vintage line for this reason alone - they look great when the paintjob is as detailed as the sculpt job.

Considering the Nick line will probably never hold a value if kept MOC, I've been contemplating opening all mine up, giving them accurate painjobs and displaying loose. Maybe one day.

Off to a great start! Those look good.

Many thanks, everybody!

Muckman is on my list for sure, but before I do him or anyone else I wanna finish the ones above that still need work done. I did Joe Eyeball already, though I forgot to post a pic. I'll take some new shots of him when I get around to the next figure or two. I've done some other stuff, but it wasn't really anything I felt was worth photographing, like making Bebop's shoe soles/fronts white (as they're clearly inspired by Converse All Stars) & making the spiderweb on General Traags arm white as well. & I painted the grommets on Nick Leatherhead's wraps silver too. Little things like that. I could take pics if this stuff sounds interesting to anyone but I figured it was too minimal for anyone to care. :trazz:

I can only imagine the amount of precision that all must've taken - and that would've driven me absolutely nuts, so kudos. I especially like those last few, where every last little detail/accessory is accounted for...they're just interesting to look at. Neat stuff.

Awesome job man! I always thought about doing this as well, as I already do it with some small statues where some paint is misplaced or forgotten.

What kind of paint did you use?

06-15-2015, 09:06 PM
Great job, man. But yeah I've been doing my own touch ups since the first wave (with no previous experience, mind you) and have found it to be a very enjoyable experience.

Looks sweet man!
I'm been on the fence of doing the same thing. The new toys have some really great sculpted details that is lacking paint work.I know these figures would really shine after a decent paint job including painting the accessories.
Especially Dogpound. There's so much detail sculpted that didn't have paint and even the fur texture could use some paint to bring out the details. It's a lot of work that I'm tempted to do but lazy to start.

All I've been using are acryllic paint markers that cost $2 each, which makes the whole process pretty accessible. The only other tool I use is an exacto knife to scrape off imperfections. Ya wash the toy with soap & water, let it fully dry, & go to work. Bing, bang, boom. I say, go for it! :)

& thanks for the nice comments, y'all.

Hey Powder I was wondering if you could tell us how tall Napoleon is compared to the turtles since you got him early.

That Dogpound is just wicked! :D Awesome job, Powder!
