I'm new to the forum and have a custom question. I've been a custom fan for many years but never attempted a custom of my own.
I've got two kids and I'm wondering if there's any method or guidance you could suggest for custom painting a very basic figure that would be safe for kids to play with and likely to stand up to play (resist chipping or paint wear, etc.).
The project I want to attempt is really simple. The kids are really into Richard Scarry's Busytown and I've gotten one of them the set of 8 figures that came out in 2011.
Obviously that line didn't sell well and that resulted in them releasing Pig Willhttp://www.amazon.com/Richard-Scarry-Bu ... B005HA657U
but not his friend Pig Won't! Unacceptable as the duo are always together, but understandable that most people wouldn't want to buy a two-pack with nearly identical pigs.
So I bought an extra Pig Will so I can paint his shirt and that will be Pig Won't.
Is this possible to do safely for play? I can't seem to determine on the figure or the package what the toys are made out of but it seems to be just some typical hard plastic.
Thanks for the help! Hopefully this sets my kids and I off on some fun custom projects for years to come.
