"BC" Official Mods and Paint Thread. UPDATED 3/8/13 PGM restore and strip!

I am a budding modder I can do lots of things, but I’m best at painting yoyos :smiley: if you like what you see we can work something out.I AM NOW PAINTING YOYOS FOR A SMALL SUM: Splash: 50 cents, gets a splash and a clear coat. Speckle is more because Spray Paint isn’t cheap :). 1.00 a yoyo. Also gets a clear coat. I’m afraid if I offer up certain mods I might break your yoyo :o!

Here are some old ones, new ones on last few pages!.

Thats All Ive Done for now.

That’s really cool looking, man! Keep up the good work! :slight_smile:

Thanks ;)!

Please leave Feedback ;). Really want to know if it looks good or if it’s a amateurs job. :slight_smile:

they all look pretty pro to me;)! The green one especially looks professionally done.

That paint will chip off extremely easily unless you put a clear coat over the top.


No offense, looks sorta amateur-ish…Cause the paint is just another layer and has a raised texture, so it is bumpy.

On translucent yoyos (and especially clear ones), just paint the inside of the yoyo instead of the outside. Your paint job will be protected and you won’t have any texture issues.

I threw it on with a paint brush, so I could not control it ;). So far it’s pretty firm and chip-less. No bumps here it’s pretty smooth. I only got a little on the outside. And I tried the drill/dremel method, nothing but a coat of black paint, I washed it off quickly.

And tips other than paint the inside? And I have no caps, these yoyo’s were free.

What can I use for a clear coat?

A clear poly will work. The auto parts store also sells clear coat in small spray cans.

Thanks! What’s your opinion on the yoyo’s?

I think they look good - for a splash.
(I’m not a fan of splash finishes.)

Everyone has their personal opinions ;). What finish do you prefer?

Ok, I’m going to Speckle my PGM and maybe my panda. Pics later today :).


Here they are, Not my best. My paint was mest up. D:

Ok im back with a new painted PGM. Needs a clear coat which I will add later today. Featuring “yoyoexpertman54’s Home made plastic yoyo stand :).” It is also not done, I’m going to add a splash or splatter before the clear coat.

Ok, Opinions? Also I’m taking a poll on wether I should Splatter paint it with White Dark blue (navy) or Grey/silver.

Or I can buy some paint like my other jobs, and splash it. Color opinions?

Or keep it black? You guys POLL!

nice stand looks good

I know, thanks so much for it and the WYYW looper :). What do you think I should put over it? Silver Speckle or Navy speckle or White speckle or keep it the way it is?

Also a new mod. Just had a screwdriver sharpened and dug a recess in my panda. Silicone drying. Pics in 2 days :).
