    hey Radicons!
    I'm working on a repaint of the Optimus from Animated "The Battle Begins" two pack into a custom character.

    I'd like to give my repaint the appearence of having blood splattered all over his body. What are some ways I can achieve this? * I don't have an airbrush.

    On old action figure repaints/customs I did back in the day (Prophet and Crypt from Prophet and Youngblood), I just used some red testors enamel and just stabbed it down onto whatever I wanted "blood" on. These characters were notorious for having blood everywhere and all over them, so I splattered the enamel paint onto their weapons and their bodies. It turned out really well--you can even straight up paint it a bit, but to get that splatter effect, you can just try what I mentioned.

    This is just how I did it about 10 years ago on some action figure customs, so I'm not sure if there are other ways to do this--I just did what I could with 'em. I don't have them here with me, otherwise I'd post them for you to see (they're stored back home in my old house). Good luck with it, man.

    I use an old toothbrush and 2 shades of the color. 1st coat is heavier and darker, 2nd coat a little lighter, and a little less of it.

    Do you run your finger/thumb across the bristles to make the splatter effect, or do you have another method I can learn! :D BTW guys, wear a rubber glove with the thumb method!:thumbs2: <---(see, not red)
