    I have been a sculpture for a while now, but I only sculpted using sculpey and super sculpey. How would one make a sculpture using Resin? Any advice would be grand.

    They aren't sculpted in resin, they're cast. The basic figure can be made of whatever you want I guess, then you make a negative mold where you pour liquid resin into, which then hardens and voilà – you can make an infinite army of your own toys.

    Rotocasted vinyl is still the main thing in the toy world. But be careful if you try with the clear ones. Vinyl drips really look awful: http://rotocasted.com/ToyPunk...

    I have a fondness for resin art toys, I don't know what it is. Maybe the weight, the texture or the way resin holds detail differently to vinyl. If I could start collecting art toys again I think I'd have a particular focus on resin figures. I just love them very, very much...

    Resin is boss. However, still love my vinyl. I do love the weight of a resin piece, yet I love the feel of a smooth Japanese vinyl piece...I know that sounds erotic, LOL, but you sofubi lovers know what I mean ;)

    I am on a paint quest as well. I like a water-based paint for ease of use/clean-up/thinning for a brush. Yet, I am also experimenting with a paint called Mr. Color... a strongly pigmented paint that goes on thin, dries flat... email me if you like we can talk customizing auryndesign@gmail.com

    auryn- for the acrylics i use, i usually use this stuff called 'pink soap'. it cleans and conditions the brush. it gets all the acrylic off and works very well. check it out if you use a lot of acrylic.. i use about a 50/50 of acrylic and 'graff' paint.. that stuff is so harsh on me brushes that i just use my crappy ones and have to dip em in acetone after im done with em..

    100 $ sounds pricey

    so you can just sculpt one yourself for only a few bucks material costs :)

    Huh? Odd...
    Maybe they just evaporated somehow? Probably should add them again.

    Hilariously standing! Maybe the one I got is a booty, because one leg is visibly shorter than the other. *tsk tsk*

    Mine also has two legs, but they are equally long. However, I can relate to your Mr. Waverley, since my own two legs are not the exact same size. My right leg is actually a bit shorter than my left leg. Maybe I'm a bootleg as well?

    That goes for my ears. When I was small kid punk in the 70's we used to pierce our ears with safety pins. But the needles we used weren't totally sterile so I got a bad infection, and my ear never was the same.

    Kids!

    The only German toy store I know of would be Toykio in Düsseldorf, if I'm not completely mistaken right now. But you could try your luck with some random urban or comic book stores, but chances are pretty small indeed ;-)
