Hi guys! I'm new to the forums.


I have acquired over 100 Dragon Ball Keshi gomu. I have both keshi gomu that originated from Gashapon and colored keshis from the Boolz French series, so I am trying to get the keshis painted as well.


I tried Games Workshop's paints and they were very sticky at first. They aren't as much anymore (after 5 months) but some of the painted figures (I gave 6 figures a white coating for testing) have lost a bit of the paint by being exposed to one another:

I was wondering if anyone had any experience with painting these sort of figures and what advice you would give me. I also tried a vinyl spray but that proved to be even worse, the one figure I painted with it is way more stickier than the others ever were:

If anyone knows a safe product that would allow me to remove paint that would also come in handy.


Thanks everyone!

I believe Simple Green takes paint off and shouldn't damage the figures. I know people use that when stripping War Hammer 40k figures.
