Hey everyone!

I'm new here, so I thought I'd start off by telling you a little about myself. I'm a Toy Photographer who started by shooting exclusively Lego. I really hated action figures for the longest time because I only ever had super crappy ones that fell apart quick. A friend let me shoot his Marvel Legends Spidey and I was hooked. I went and bought Miles Morales not two days after that shoot and here I am, with 12 or so Legends plus figures from other various brands like Mythic Legions, Tamashii Nations and Figma.


Anyway, on to the custom. This is the Marvel Legends First Ten Years Iron Man MK 7. I wasn't happy with how clean and plastic-y it looked. So I weathered him using a weathering technique I learned from BLKSRS on Instagram. You take brown and black shoe polish and slather it all over the figure, then wipe off the excess. Simple as that. Then I took some spray paint, sprayed it on a bottle top and applied it with a small paintbrush.  I repeated the weathering and dry brushing a couple times until I got the desired result. The final touches were painting the repulsors on the fisted hands and adding some extra battle damage. It was a really easy process and it vastly improves the look of the figure.
