Batman Modern PF cape minor scratches

I accidentally scratched Batman Modern PF cape with the batarang in his hand. These scratches are on the surface only - no damage to the sculpt. Is there a good way to touch these up? Again very superficial, can't see unless you shine a bright light directly on them, and is mostly covered up by the way he is posed. Should I mess with it or leave it alone? Any advice or help is appreciated!

With the gradient there you would want to use an airbrush and you would want to make sure you have the right colors picked out and tested before applying it to the statue. I have touched up some scratches like this with just a brush and a quetip to thin out the paint. In a situation like this it may not work out due to the length.

If you don't feel comfortable doing it, don't, it doesn't look that bad at all. You can always make it worse and make more work to fix.

From what I can tell in your pic, it looks more like the satin clear coat is scuffed.

Borrow money from a pessimist, they don't expect it back.

I have this as well on a few of my statues, I guess there is no real easy fix?

You can see it pretty clearly when all the lights in my cabinet are lit up.

if youre feeling a little ballsy i would scuff it with really fine sand paper (600 grit) then matte clear coat the whole thing - that should take care of it but its kind of one of those things you wont know for sure until you give it a shot
