sparkleminnow..i havent tried the soft bodies yet myself but i would imagine the same tech's would be applied to soft bodies as it would to the hard bodies.
Probably the only difference would be that the soft bodies may take a extra coat of paint as it would probably tend to absorb the paint more readily and might take a coat or two more to get the color as viberant as well as taking a bit longer to dry.

I finally decided to try and paint some poppers with an airbrush. After reading a post on airbrushing with sharpies, I looked into how much would it really cost for an airbrush? So I ordered a cheap China airbrush kit off ebay. I have the compressor, so my cost is very low. I'm painting foam poppers, so I don't need an expensive set up. When all said and done. I might have $40 with the paint invested. I look for deals, And this kit gave you everything but the compressor. As I was reading up on-line the how to guides on airbrushing a popper. I found this old post. I wont need this big of a setup, but the info is good.
