Here you can talk about everything that has to do with painting LEGO. I normally don't paint LEGO, but the first time I did it was today. Those Clone Wars visors (I have the gray ones) are totally gray. In color it looks better for commanders so I decided to paint one visor orange. (Not done yet, one part has been done - I now wait till I can do the other parts of it) and I don't really care as I will get more black visors than gray (from Clone BP's, etc.), one visor will be kept in the normal color, or two (depends on if I want to Commander Fox' too or not) and one/two will be in color. Colored visors look much better on commander-minifigs! For the people who have painted Galactic Marines and they came out very nice, is it hard to do?

Well I painted my first custom and I have some useful tips:
1. If you want crisp, clean lines mask off the areas with tape.
2. Use a blow dryer to speed up the progress of painting and adding multiple layers.
3. Apply multiple coats of paint for a nice, even color.

I personnaly don't like to paint Lego. If we paint it, we will never get that figurine like it was in the past...

If you use arcylic paint, you can later remove it if you don't want to keep the painted version.

I painted a safari trooper. I did it by using a storm trooper helmet and puting it on a body that was fully black. the i used a brush that was dried out from my other creations to paint it yellow. It gave it the black and yellow striped look. Idid the same for the gun. It acualy looks pretty cool, check it out!!

Yah, I'll paint my stuff every once in a while, just so that I can get a more accurate color scheme.
