    Haha, thanks! Everytime I look at that pic, I assume the vinyl's thinking, "those are my cousins on that cupcake!"

    the large ones are about 10 to 12 inches. They are more a soft feel. I gave my large one away.

    You can either paint the figure as is or you can remove the arms and head from the body. The main issues with removing the head and arms is that they run the risk of ripping off from the knub and they can be tricky to put back on once you have painted them so it could create issues with your paint. I think its better to just paint the figure without removing the body parts. Once you have your design I find it easiest to use a Mechanical pencil to sketch out the design and use it as my guidelines for what I'm going to paint. If you have to erase a line it might not erase all the way; but it will eventually be covered with paint anyway.

    I've been using regular Acrylic paints from Joanns crafts. Main thing you should keep in mind is to apply the paint in layers to build up the color and to allow the paint to dry before you apply another layer which doesn't take long usually a couple seconds depending on how thick you applied the paint.

    As for finishing the vinyl I've had good results with using Krylon Matte clear from a rat-can (again you can find this at a Arts and Crafts store in the spraypaint case). It dries quickly and giving the figure a good couple coats will help with protecting your figure.

    Goodluck with your custom!

    Re: Post Your Vinylmation Photography

    Wow great ideas. Thanks! I had no idea the limbs might be removable. Hopefully I can find the right type of paint for what I'm thinking of doing. I have two 3" Mickeys on order from Disneystore.com and am hoping to get a 9" from ebay soon. I'll post pictures when I'm done.

    Also I have a bunch of Tulip brand fabric paints. Do you suppose that would work just as well as acrylic or is the figure more plastic than fabric?

    Vinyl is getting better and better with technology. Some feel almost like natural fabrics now and clothing is made from it as well. Thats the only reason why I asked.
