Custom Designer Vinyl Toys, Paper Toys & Plush Toys
Tutorial by Bil Betsovic.
Step 1: Striped the original paint off with goof-off (DO NOT use on plastics. l learned the hard way by ruining a 10 inch icebot body) This stuff is amazing on vinyl as it takes off factory paint in a couple of swipes!!
The brush I usually use is a synthetic hair brush. I feel they work the best for me and get a real smooth finish. I usually wait around 30 minutes per coat for drying time. I keep my hands very clean every time I wash the brush and I make sure to wash ALL paint of my hands. Also I have learned that if you don’t sometimes you may go to grab the piece your working on and put a big blue mark all over it.
Step 2: Heated up the heads with a hairdryer and popped the eyes out. Then started the 1st coat with FOLKART acrylics.
Step 3: This is after the 1st base coat of the orange paint, you can barely tell but its there. I had to do around 12-15 coats of this orange to get it the final orange color.
Step 4: This is where i started to run the lava up the bodies of the ZLIKS and added the drool around the mouth by just adding a lil water to the acrylics. You can also see that the eyes have been coated quite a few times with GID green paint. You can also see a road map to my friends AKERS house.
Step 5: Now I started on the belly patches using the same paint.
Step 6: After all the painting finished I clear coated it with 3x krylon and all the pieces of the toys were put back together.
All the rest is a SECRET hahahahahahahahahaha
