I have a major problem with manufacturers using the crappiest cloth they can find for making outfits. It is inexcusable, most especially in the caseof those companies who charge premium prices for their products.At the same time, I do believe & feel 1:6 manufacturers needs to use better materials that will not bleed/leech color onto 1:6 bodies, but then again that will add to the cost of the figure and be problematic from an overall manufacturing perspective.
Use a spray varnish like Mr. Super Clear to "seal" the body off from dyes dust and gunk. Mr. Super Clear is safe for plastic and rubber bodies as is Testor's Dull Coat, but be careful with clear coats from the spray paint aisles. Some may contain chemicals harmful to the plastic/rubber.What do you mean seal the body?
I've used it on Obitsu soft bodies (read squishy) with no problem. I've yet to have it crack or anything negative and, since I make my own oufits, the bodies are subjected to a lot of tailoring and putting on/removal of a variety of fabrics. However, I have no idea what the makeup of the Obitsu body is versus Phicen. There are a variety of sealers that are made for different types of rubbery materials, but which ones work with what, well, I can't do all the work for you.Mr Super Clear works a treat on hard plastic bodies.
I'm not sure I'd want to try it on anything squashy like a phicen, not till someone else had tried it first!!!
There is one solution...put the figure into white undies or the skin tight triad bodysuits things first so that the coloured garment doesn't touch the skin.
