Which paint to use on vintage MOTU?

Post by fuzzcat on Wed Jun 22, 2011 1:39 am

Yo,

So I've ju,ped on the vintage MOTU band wagon well and truly, and have acquired a few figures here and there. Some need a little TLC to get them back to their former glory - mostly it's teeth that have been rubbed off. One though (Spikor) was a unique find - as best I can tell, his eyes were never painted on!

Can you customisers and restorers out there give me some kind of idea of the best kind of paints to use on the figures? Acrylic? Oil? Particularly for Spikor, who doesn't have the hollow rubber head.

Cheers.

I restored a couple of figures that were in need of some TLC. I used normal acrylic paints, namely on my Mossman figure who had no paint left on his eyes and teeth.

Just like nitey said, acrylic would be best / safest IMO as well. The others might react to the old plastics and rubber, but i reckon warhammer paints would be great to use, and easier to handpaint =-)

Acrylic! That's what I've used many times.
