    Now i'd love to create my own customised figures but I am not very talented when it comes to crafting so I suppose repainting and minor tweaks is more my sort of thing. Except I can't paint... i'm not very good with a brush so are there any types of pens that can be used to paint plastic and metal allowing me to repaint my figures?

    Some people use metallic sharpies but they will rub off without a clear coat and even still id try taping the area putting a base coat. Scissors n masking tape if you're afraid of clumping use up some paint up prior so the can is thinned out adequately .i had issues with that when i started 10 years ago ....wow ole bendy prime

    A lot of people use what is called Gundam Markers. They're basically paint pens. Not sure where you can find them specifically but since Gundam models are common in Japan I doubt they're hard to find.

    A clear coat, unless I am mistaken, is a sealer. It protects paint from scratches. I use floor polish as my sealer but others use commercial paint sealers.
