Hi,

I think is the best Evil Lyn figure I have ever seen! Does the paint rub off then you move her hands/legs? If no how did you prevent it? I have trying to customise figures but I suck at it... any tips??

Best,

thank you so much, im really pleased you like her.

the paint was sealed with a thin layer of varnish but if the joints got a lot of wear & tear the paint would eventually rub off.
i remember reading a tip once were someone said if you put a thin layer of superglue over the painted joint that will prevent the paint rubbing off. obviously you have to be careful not to use too much glue otherwise you will glue the joints together.
i hope this is of some help.

its actually made from a product called makins clay which is an air drying clay. but what makes it different is when it is dry it feels like a bendy plastic so it is perfect for making capes ets for figures :)

I so wish I could have this figure for my own collection. You have another Evil-Lyn you might want to trade?

Really good work. How did you do a paint app this clean? What's your technique?

i really dont have a technique as such. i guess the fact that i use really small brushes is a good help :)

Please do elaborate, for the life of me, I can't get even skin tones on my customized figures. Do you use a primer first? Do you thin the paint with water or something else? I need all the help I can get! Thanks!

for getting the paint even i think the best way to do it is build it up in thin layers. dont try to put loads on at once. that way i find i always get a better result.
i personally use enamel paints when i do my customs. i know a lot of people prefer acrylics because they dry quicker bui personally i have always have had better results with enamels. the only time i use acrylics is when i am painting rubber parts of figures as enamels dont seem to dry properly on rubber.

i hope this was of some help & good luck :)

Thank you so much! I mainly use acrylics as enamel paints remain sticky and don't dry fully, but thank you for the tips about building up thin layers!

the technical term is yellowfacing and is considered an asian stereotype and is usually frowned upon though to be fair when I saw her it was in the filmation series not the figure didnt get one till years later minus the wand

when was Evil lyn ever yellow? I don't remember her being yellow in the cartoons.

:iconnightwing1975:

no she was never yellow in the cartoons but the classic 80's action figure was yellow. that is why i was asked to repaint this figure in the actual cartoon colours :)

I see, I wonder why they did that, was beige paint really that expensive in the '80's?

although saying that i think a lot of the he-man & she-ra action figures back then didnt look ecactly like their cartoon versions. but maybe evil-luns yellow skin was just a lot more niticible :)
