There is no real right answer. I bought paints from several places that all worked. The best quality paints you would by from a hobby store. I bought paints both from a store that sells models and from a. Board game store that sells miniatures, but you will pay a lot more for those paints. I’ve also gone to Walmart and bought small bottles of craft paints. One brand I would avoid that you can find everywhere bit I have never had luck with is Testers paints.
Both of those ideas of your spine just fine. Remember to make sure you don’t use oil based paints. The best part about painting a figure is, I’d your not happy with the results you can always paint over it again. Light coats are best. Don’t rush it, don’t try to paint to much in one go.
Absolutely you can just primer it. If you look at the instructable closer I didn’t sand the whole action figure. I just sanded the seams on the action figure and then primed it. To keep the details I would buy a spray on primer and do 1 or 2 light coats.
You guys are correct. This isn’t perfect but I did seem to help a lot of people cut some scrap wood. Thank you for your in-sites.

That is awesome. Good job. The ratchet straps are a must. I didn’t use them at first but my bikes flopped around way to much.
Good advice. I bought a cue a few months ago, can’t use it right now because of the worlds issues, but I have no idea if it is the right cue for me.
You guys are doing Gods work on the Devils day and for this I thank you. This year since there will be less kids out I think we will be sliding out full chocolate bars.
If you tried Testers paints they will always be somewhat shiny even the ones labeled matte. I was always disappointed in there paints. I went to a hobby store that sold stuff for painting board game miniatures and bought War painters Warpaints. I love there paints. Here is a link to there site but I’m sure you can get it on amazon or elsewhere. The exact clear coat I used of there’s is called matte varnish. https://www.thearmypainter.com/
I don’t typically with action figures because they just sit in display and never get moved but I have painted figures that come with board games and I use any clear matt spray or brush on such as me.super clear. Just make sure it is flat matt because an all gloss or semi glass figure ends up looking very cheap and plastic. Also if there is parts you want to have a slight gloss to like eyes or a dogs nose buy a small bottle of brush on gloss clear coat, after the Matt clear coat dries you apply the gloss to the areas you want to look shiny or wettish.
I wasn’t years ago but I now am. I encourage you to add to the instructable community and make an instructable on the topic. Thanks for checking out my instructable.
Is that what the gross green slim layer is that forms when you do this?
Very creative way to build the two hardest parts of a pinball table. The flippers and the score board. Well done.
Although this will help you cut straiter with a jig saw it isn’t ideal. A jig saw is designed for its blade to move around somewhat freely. You’ll be very unlikely to get a perfectly strait line with a jig saw. What project are you working on or what are you trying to build?
That hilarious that you found it again. Thanks.
Glad you enjoyed it. I’ve made this game for people to enjoy so you can adapt it how ever you like to make it the most enjoyable for you. For a counter I just download a generic counter that can keep track of 2 scores and keep score that way. The one I use is called ‘magic life counter’ and you can set up all kinds of scoring on it. Thanks for commenting.
My thinkin was that this game is sort of like pool training, so since avoiding the 8 is a part of regular billiards I wanted that to remain the same here.
