What materials do I need to start customizing?

There is no simple answer to that question, and every customizer will answer differently. Some basics include:

  1. X-acto knife & mat knife
  2. Superglue
  3. Acrylic paints
  4. Paint brushes
  5. Sculpting medium
  6. Sandpaper
  7. Spray paint primer

Ultimately, one could get by with the above list. However, in the interest of sanity, I highly recommend some or all of the following:

  1. Dremel
  2. Magic Sculpt
  3. Plumber’s epoxy
  4. Super Sculpey
  5. Alumilite
  6. Various sharp pointy things
  7. Dullcote
  8. Access to a computer and printer
  9. Modeling paste
  10. Matte gel medium
  11. A full range of spray paint colors
  12. Masking tape
  13. Drill & drill bits
  14. Airbrush
