There are lots of brand names of interlocking bricks. Lego is among the most significant brand names and has ended up being the household name for “Bricks”. Instead of stating, “My child enjoys interlocking bricks” they would say “My child loves Legos” even if the brand name was off brand or unbranded. When individuals tailor Miniature figures they may say, “Lego Minifigures” or “Lego Minifig’s”, but that is just because Lego is the widely acknowledged name for interlocking brick mini figures. This post is going to teach you how to customize your own Lego Minifigures. There are 3 phases of customizing Minifigures, these are selecting a character, using their characteristics that make them unique, and after that customizing.

First, picking a character might sound easy. You need to select a character that has distinct characteristics (action 2 will be a lot easier) and they need to be commonly known so anyone can recognize the character as a Minifigure. Some examples of characters that are tailored are; Donald Trump, Michael Myers (Halloween), Jason Voorhees (Friday the 13 th), Freddy Krueger (Problem on Elm Street), Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (TMNT), Carrie (Carrie movie), The Punisher (The Punisher motion picture), and a lot more! If you would take one take a look at any of these personalized Lego Minifigures you would immediately know who they were! Michael Myers has an all-white face, brown/orange hair piece, a knife, and a blue dive match. The Minifigure looks identical to the scary movie legend!

2nd, utilizing their characteristics that make them distinct can get complicated. What makes a bad guy or a hero the hero? What qualities or symbols can make anyone recognize who they are? Captain America would require to have the blue and white suit, the famous star shield, and blue helmet of some sort. Those are his qualities. Someone like Freddy Krueger would have to have a red/green striped shirt, brown/black hair/head piece, burned face, and knives for hands. Those are traits that must not be neglected – discovering great traits ties in with choosing the right character to customize.

Third, personalizing the Minifigure will take ability. Some products you will need to tailor are apple barrel shiny paint, low-cost paint brush, tooth choices, X Acto knife, Testors paint, Lego rod pole to personalize small pieces, oven baked clay, hot glue, and a plain Minifigure. Once your idea is set and you have all of the products you need you can begin by painting a plain Minifigure over with the Apple Barrel Glossy paint so that the Minifigure is all one color. When this is done you can utilize the paint brush (for larger strokes) or tooth picks to use the Testors paint to the Minifigures face/body. This step will take an artist. Paint well! After this is total, utilize the Lego plate and Lego 1×1 rounds to produce a rod/pole that can position a smaller product like a weapon or hair piece. Then use the brush/tooth choice to paint the smaller sized pieces. You can utilize the oven baked clay to mold brand-new weapons/body parts. You will wish to bake with the suggested degrees and time in order for the clay to harden and not damage the Mini figure. Once all steps are total let dry for 24 hours and you will have a masterpiece!
