Personal Quote: I had life all figured out for a minute, but then I forgot what I was thinking.
Seemed there for a minute like the music I liked was pretty much done being made, which makes a gangsta feel old.
2014 has put things back on track some though with releases from some of my favorite bands, like In Flames, Korn, and Demon Hunter.

With me working at home doing the custom figures thing and staying with my 3 daughters I havent been around many people regularly for years now, so checking out new things I hear about through word of mouth is pretty rare these days for me.
I like a little bit of everything, but mostly death/heavy metal with at least somewhat of a melody in there.
If you guys know of anything I should be checking out, spill it!

Hey. Do you do parts castings? I'm trying to get some parts duplicated in non-transparent plastic.
Unicron9 Featured By Owner Sep 4, 2014  Professional Artisan Crafter
Nope. I should, but I dont.
KingNekokaiser Featured By Owner Sep 4, 2014  Student Filmographer
Okay, nevermind. I think the part I need casting of is probably too complex to replicate, anyway. Plus it's from a simplified knockoff, so it might not even work as I was hoping for, anyway.

Love your recent work on the Age of Extinction line!!!! The paintjobs on them are simply spectacular, with Galvatron being my favourite thus far!!!

By the way, do you have any advice on or recommended brands of paint for painting soft plastics like AOE Strafe's tail/Scorn's spine+Tail?
I've painted it over with Tamiya 'For Plastics' Spray as a basecoat, but unfortunately, it turned the plastic rather sticky and the paint doesn't adhere to it very well(It comes off when I touch it)

Unfortunately the parts you painted with Krylon fusion will never dry, and in fact it will likely break down the rubber over time, turning it into a gooey mess. Removing it all is very difficult too so those guys might be trash now. You have to use acrylics. I suggest a base coat of those cheap tube water acrylics they sell at wal-mart in the craft section. They arent as strong as enamels, but with a coat of vallejo varnish clear brushed over them, it is sturdy enough.

Darn.I see..........I'll switch to those water-based acrylics now. I don't understand why some forums mentioned Tamiya's "for-plastics" spray is safe for use on the soft plastics, when it clearly isn't!!!

Oh well, live and learn!

Thanks for the advice!! :)
