3) Is my plastic paintable?

I really like this place. I had some questions regarding plastic materials and these guys are very knowledgeable. The cool thing about them is that you can see what the material looks and feels like, plus they have people from the motion picture industry using their materials when making small scale models. I had questions about painting certain plastics and the employees here gave me some excellent recommendations. -Steve S.
I stumbled onto this website through prop forums and social networks like tumblr. This is a great place for cosplayers and also for creative people that are working on prototypes for different applications. For those people that are on a budget I would highly recommend buying plastic remnants at their Will Call. They have a pretty big selections of materials to choose from. I think this place is amazing. –Susie H.
