Has anyone tried thermal pigments?
« on: July 27, 2017, 02:38:23 AM »
I was thinking of trying a thermal pigment to restore a G1 Euro Nurse pony (symbols like the MM ponies) whose symbols are shot, but am nervous about whether it will work on a pony.  I realize I should probably try it on a less expensive pony, like one of the Magic Message ones first, but the pigment is pricey and I am wondering if it would be even be worth it to experiment.  Has anyone tried mixing thermally-sensitive pigments in a binder that will work on ponies?  Would there be interest in restoring these ponies if the technique works?

Oooooh! I remember a number of years ago someone getting thermal pigments, but they never said how they got on. I've been curious ever since about them and if they'd work for restoring magic message or nurse ponies.

I ordered some and they work great!  I mix with a clear acrylic before applying them.
