Eh :/ sharpies aren't very pretty in my opinion.



I didn't know clones were supposed to be pretty! If you have a good hand and thin point sharpies, works like a charm
Yeah if you play were put the sharpie it will get all over the clone Roll Eyes Razz Mad .Like if you use Red thin point and play were you put the sharpie the clone helmet will turn pink all aver. Roll Eyes

Newer sharpies don't smear on plastic, that's why I started out fresh with new packs of sharpies.

Laughing My old sharpies were from '01 too! I don't know when they changed the ink formula, but I bought packs from '08, and they work like a charm.

Actually it looks liked he thanked the person for posting this info. Roll Eyes What if he had a question about it? You guys really need to leave this stuff up to the staff.

You can report it. But just make sure you look at the content. Are they adding something to it? In this case thanking some for making it I think is valid. However, I agree he should have added some more detail. Like: "Thanks for the info. I'll post my attempts here when I get them finished this week." It does look like a crappy bump at first.

If you think you see a spam/old bump etc. just flag it. That's ABL's job. Razz Let us worry about it. Adding to the thread creates long off topic sections like this one. Shocked

So speaking of customs I'm ready to do my first water decals this weekend. Painting sucks! Razz

Matt Thunder-blade has also discovered that you can use rubbing alchohol to get sharpies off of figures. So if you mess up it's fine. Smile

Painting takes a lot more patience then sharpying, because if you screw up, you have to wash off all the paint and start over. With sharpies, you can use a cotton bud to wipe off the screwed up bits.
