Protective base for figures that lay flat?Protective base for figures that lay flat?Ask MFC

sweettacoboysweettacoboyHace 1 mes
Hello, I'm new at collecting and hit a wall. Does anyone have a good idea for a base to protect figures that lay flat (like the C.C and Yoko bunny figures) so the don't just lay the stockings and everything on wood the whole time. I have the birthday cake rem ITEM #544784 and love the soft fur base it comes with and was thinking something along those lines and where to even find that material. just unsure what kind of material would cause some issues with paint if there is any, or a better idea. Any help would be appreciated!

sweettacoboyHace 1 mes#78416991I'm for the faux fur, I'm just need to find some short hair fur that's big enough to cover a shelf but not tall enough to cover the figures too much. Was even thinking maybe some felt white felt? Not sure about color bleed (if any) with felt

Here's a pic of Jibril I took awhile back with the faux fur scarf:

If you can find short fluffy faux fur, go for it. Felt would be easy to get a hold of. Plus, you can cut/shape/manipulate the base to whatever design you like.

As for paint transfer, I have not seen any but I'm highly doubtful if there's any paint transfer if I leave the figure alone.

CloudberryHace 1 mes#78415361I have the same problem with my bunny Jibril but my girlfriend gave me her fuzzy infinity scarf..
Which gave me an idea to try some faux fur rug or silk kimono scraps which I might use for the upcoming Izuna figure ITEM #676118

Hopping on the fake fur thing, it might be kind of fun to gut a stuffed animal and make a comical rug out of it.

sweettacoboyHace 1 mes#78288831That's more along the lines of what I was thinking, just cover a shelf and have all the lay flat up there. Wonder if a fabric store would have it thin enough so it isn't overbearing on the figures bit still offer a bit of a barrier
I would say check your store to see if they have any short hair faux fur and probably get it in a light color, one that won't stain your figures. I'm not sure if faux fur can stain but white is usually the safest option while darker colors like black or red fabrics will often stain most things if kept on there for a while.

E2046 is definitely a good source. I'm curious after reading this and don't want to write a new article just for this question, so maybe someone here can answer it. Has anyone experienced any problems with paint transfer by a figure that's just placed directly on the shelf? I only got one figure that's laying flat (ITEM #740172) and I don't really like the pillow that came with it, because I think the bright color distracts alot from the figures in the shelf.

AsiendyHace 1 mes#78288467Was about to tell you about e2046 but someone already did so... I agree with him/her and confirm what has been said, you can find many bases and among them, fluffy ones :)limitedchoicesHace 1 mes#78282520e2046.com sells tools for people building garage kits. they sell a whole bunch of bases like the round fluffy ones, might be worth a shot ?

rococoroseHace 1 mes#78287172I have a few figures that are lying down, so I'm honestly considering just going to a fabric store and buying a piece of that fluffy fabric to cover a whole shelf with. I find the fluffy circles they come with take up so much room, so if I just had one piece I could put the figures closer together and fit more on a shelf too
