yer i have tried that but it didnt work out i used this great paint read my home page about it, and i would really recommend people stop relying on it sure use it for obvious things like bold out lines on helmets but for a more precise and detailed look go for paint and once again look at my home page there is the detail about it. thankyou though i will keep sharpies in mind.

For coloring:
Sharpie
If you don't want to keep the design, carefully cut a piece of packing tape and cover the LEGO, it can be peeled of for a different design.

For taking of plastic:
Nail clippers
X-Acto knife
Wire cutters
Sandpaper
Make sure to get at least on rough, one medium, and one fine grade sandpaper.

For adding parts:
Epoxy
Clay

(out of the blue) hey! anyone have trouble painting their clones armor?
Just use a toothpick and slightly dip it in the paint or use a really sharp pencil (it works...believe me)

i also found another way to remove sharpie. this is one of the risker methods. take a cotton stick thing and dip it in nail polish remover. then rub it over the spot you want gone. altough it takes it off after 6 or 7 coats, if it touches anything that lego printed on it will most likely take it off it is wiped over multiple times.

you must do this 1-6hours if you want the best results. 6-12 most of it will come off 12-24 most of it comes off. past 24hours i don't know what will happen.

A little bit of hairspray gets it off faster, just run a little water over whatever you're spraying so it doesn't get sticky. (i tried it with my sisters hairspray)

These methods wotk because both nail polish remover and hairspray contain alchohol. For best results, use plain rubbing alchohol.

Well i use turps. its the best for everything sharpie, paint, ect i use the cotton bud idea that one works the best cause it is more of a wash once its on i get another cotton bud or just a aper towel thats works to and whip of all the paint or whatevr off keeping the rest fine.
