For all your (future) creations.
Many of you may not know what creatives they are, which is why DIY figures are a good way to find out by participating in this manual activity solo or in a group, with children for example. So maybe it's time to talk about DIY (do it yourself) figures without putting pressure on yourself because the idea is to have fun... at a lower cost. And yes the advantage of vinyl toys is that the material to customize them is very affordable: markers, Posca (water-based markers), acrylic paint (be careful, the drying time is very fast). Add to that a few brushes of different sizes for the details, it will be perfect. Also note that for those who want to push the customization further, some miniatures have removable parts.
Imagine having your figures in the colors and patterns of your dreams ? Of course, it will surely be easier to start with small figures, like the Unicorno DIY by Tokidoki (to discover in addition in the blind box) or the Android Vinyl figure. Mini figures are a great playground to introduce new creatives and children to, before trying larger ones. Or more complex, such as the Sentai Maria DIY by Soasig Charmaillard with its many pleats or the 30 cm Origine Bibendum with its rounded edges, for example.
You should also know that DIY figurines also have the advantage of making you discover the work of an artist in a different way with the character's lines to express themselves in a more minimalist way. Whether you are novices or experts, note that DIY figurines also have this particularity of creating a kind of link with the artist. Thanks to social networks, we see more and more enthusiasts sharing their creations with those who have designed the figures. Besides, some artists are also masters of custom figures like M.P Gautheron (we love her version of Kranyus by Teodoru Badiu) or Fakir and his customs including the Gojira 1000% Bearbrick. What to be perfectly inspired to get started on your own, right ?
So take your markers ! Don't hesitate to share with us the result of all your pretty customs.
