    Hi,

    I'm wondering, if the figure "original" color is already black, can drybrushing be used directly on it? After cleaning. (to create metal look)

    Thanks

    not unless you clean the hell out of it.

    I recommend at least doing a coat lightly with alcohol if using acrylics, or thinner if using enamels. this will break down the factory oils and crap that would cause your paint to merely rub off otherwise.

    Yep, either 70% or 91%, dppending on how much and how quickly you want to remove the paint, and what type of TF your painting (some don't hold up to 91% to well)
