I have an idea for customizing a figure and I'm trying to determine the best method of accomplishing my goal. Originally, I was thinking of using a cutting tool to cut a "window" into a chest plate and filling it with a cut piece of clear plastic, that way I could place an insignia beneath it and have it show through. The more I think about cutting the figure, though, the more nervous I get. So, my second thought was to simply paint the indented area of the chest plate, apply the insignia and then coat it with clear, two part epoxy. I've never done either of these things before and I am curious just how "clear" epoxy usually dries, when used as a coating. Also, will it distort the view of the insignia too much to make it plainly visible?
