Jin Saotome's guide to hotgluing your action figures


Welcome to another one of my custom action figure tutorials. In this one we will be using hotglue to customize with. The trick to using this stuff is to put high-temp glue through a low-temp glue gun. After testing many different brands I've found that Ad-Tech Ultimate Strength glue sticks work the best for this application. In this guide we will be making energy effects such as flames with hot glue and re-sizing neck post holes to attach heads on. You can also use hot glue in place of epoxy when gluing two halves of a figure together. Ok, let's get started.


Here we will use hotglue to fit a head on to a ball post.


This part covers how to make gunfire effects using hotglue

Well, that's the end of the guide. Hope you enjoyed reading!
