As in, I need help with the most basics of painting. Inspired by 84Ironhide's spectacular DotM Sideswipe repaint, I tried to recreate the feat at home. Acrylic craft paints with a normal brush basically made a runny mess that at no point decided to enhance or even adhere to the plastic. I have no idea what I'm doing and before I court help from experts on the specifics of this project I realize I should probably find out the fundamentals of the repaint. So please, anyone who's ever had any success repainting a TF: talk to me like I'm stupid and help me understand how to repaint a toy. Thanks so much.
