    O-k so I'm an idiot I spray painted my Leader Megs new murder arm and when I started painting on him this afternoon I noticed the tip of his claw (the rubbery plastic part) is sticky! How do you guys get around this? Can I spray it with a sealer? Do I have to strip this part now and start over? Any help would be awesome because he is not the only figure I have coming up that has this rubber/plastic on it.

    What paint are you using? I know for sure enamels won't bond to that type of plastic.

    strip the paint, and paint the rubber with acryilics. and if you're using enamels, then paint over the acyrilics with enamel

    acryilics bond to rubber
