by Blas Garcia

Supplies

  • Blank vinyl toy
  • 4 Ounces Mod Podge glue (glossy)
  • Old comic books
  • Scissors
  • Primer (optional)
  • Acrylic paint (optional)
  • 2 Brushes
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    First you will need to gather your supplies: blank vinyl toy, scissors, mod Podge glue, old comic books, primer (optional), acrylic paint (optional)

    Step 2

    Before painting or glueing anything on your toy it's a good idea to clean it in warm water and a little bit of soap to wash off any dirt or oils from handling

    Step 3

    If you are planning on giving the toy a base color, first use primer so your paint will stick better and give it a nice finish

    Step 4

    While you wait for the primer to dry, begin to cut out the pieces you will be glueing to the toy

    Step 5

    After the primer has completely dried begin painting! For this particular one it took 3 coats to get the blue paint to a nice solid look

    Step 6

    Apply a generous coat of Modge Podge. Don't worry about all that white stuff, as it dries it goes away

    Step 7

    Start sticking on your images pressing down firmly so no air bubbles will form. Once you have it looking the way you like it. Let it dry for 20-30 minutes. As the glue dries the white stuff disappears

    Step 8

    Once the first coat of glue has dried add a second coat on top of everything. This will seal it all in and add some protection

    Step 9

    The final product! Sometimes the glue will be sticky after it dries up. If this happens you can use a paint sealant to get a smoother finish.
