Awesome Lego minifigs with custom decals

(Custom Lego minifigs by Ryan Stebbins)

These custom minifigures are great, as they are really well thought out and very well executed, whats interesting about them is that the decals are made from stickers, which mean they are totally removable and easy to apply.

When it comes to applying decals on custom minifigures, there are three ways to do it. However first you’ll want to choose a lego torso that forms the base colour of the minifig.

1. You can apply water slide decals – water slide decals are very difficult to apply and will require you to remove the existing decal on the minifigs torso (you can so this with brass polish), you can then apply the decal and layer a few protective coats of gloss. The down side is the decal remains fragile, but the finish is fantastic. You’ll need to get these kind of decals specially made.

2. Sticky paper – you simply design, print and stick, really easy to apply and cheap too! the downside is that the edge of the sticky paper will show and if your printer or paper is low grade it will really show, best to try a photo printer with photo quality paper for a really strong glossy finish on the minifig.

3. If you can be bothered you can try using the old stencil format and effectively screen print on to the minifig.

As you can see the decal really contain the majority of the custom minifigures detail and really represents the ‘description’ of the minifig if the decal were not present the effect wouldn’t be as powerful.
