Now all that is left is the little
touches. A few coats of yellow gave Harley her blonde
hair. As long as you can keep any paint off her face you won't
have to repaint any of it.
This is also the time to check the paint rub sections.
Basically move the joints and check for anywhere (mostly the red)
where the paint is getting rubbed off. This is the number one
most challenging part of the painting process.
With the automotive paint I was able to lay
down a thin layer that isn't getting chipped off. There was a
bit at her hip that I missed. Just lay down a light layer of
paint by hand and let it dry. Test it and if it happens again,
lay down the paint again, let it dry very well
(leave it for an hour or more)
Superglue will form a shield that will help stop the paint
rub. The hard part is keeping it out of the joint so you don't
glue it in one place. A way around this is getting the glue
that comes with a brush applicator. Brushing a light coat only
over the area you know rubs and letting that harden will go a long
way in stopping the dreaded paint rub.
Now look how purdy she is.
An added bonus is that the Wasp figure comes with holes in
her feet that fit the DC Direct base peg. Like she never fell
