I've started to get a number of 3rd party Transformers figures with LED eyes. Since I have no intention of ever (and I mean EVER) putting batteries in, this mostly leaves the figures with "dead" eyes that detract from the overall appearance. If experience has taught me anything, however, it's that I'm not very good at painting (at all), so I'm hoping for a little advice. I've found that I can get 10ml Tamiya paints locally, or even Games Workshop paints (though they didn't have prices on them). The Tamiya paints were available as acrylics or enamels, so my first question would be which of these would be more appropriate? My understanding is that enamels should look better but may have more aggressive solvents which may affect the plastic (and shouldn't be put over acrylic paints), but I could be well and truly wrong on that. The next would be a matter of how exactly to apply the paint. For the most part I figure these clear panels are removable, so I'm hoping that actually getting into the cramped spaces won't be an issue. But should I be painting the inside or the outside and, if the outside, should any kind of undercoating be used? And what of clear coats? And, of course, in the event that they can't be removed (such as if they're glued or the whole piece has been moulded from clear and painted elsewhere), is a toothpick generally considered the better method of application? Or is there some kind of tiny masking trick? Last question is really only one of preference, since it pertains to colour. Since I've not done this before I'm mostly just guessing on what's appropriate here, but others who have tried may have some input. I'm aiming at getting something of a generic set of paints - a blue, a yellow, and a red - to cover 99% of situations. Since the blue is for Primes (pretty much exclusively) I'm leaning towards Light Blue. But these are then available in standard colours, "pure", metallic, pearl (I'm leaning towards this), and/or "clear", or even a combination. In terms of Transformer's eyes, is there any of these which is generally more appropriate, or any which should be avoided? Cheers.
