    Has anyone had trouble with painting soft plastic with fusion? I'm making some of my daughters Go-bots into Decepticons, and I noticed that when I hit the soft plastic that some of the pieces are made of, it didn't want to take as good as the other pieces. I'm probably gonna hit the pieces again with another coat after the first has cured, but I was curious if there might be something I might beable to do to the plastic to make it accept the fusion better.

    Any ideas? Your help would be greatly appreciated....

    perhaps remove the parts (if possible) and place them in dye

    Err...I can't offer a definitive answer on this one, but I can suggest trying "the old-fashioned" method - try a base coat of Fusion white or black and then apply the color of your choice. This is off of the top of my head, though, not from experience, so I can't gaurantee it will work. I'm just thinking about how to get rid of the original color...

    When you say "Go-Bots," you're talking about the old Go-Bots toys, right? Not the "go-bots" from the G2 line that later became the RID spychangers?
