Customizing Supplies

DESCRIPTION (Please read):
The items shown on this page are high-quality customizing supplies for use with 1/6th scale (12") action figures such as GIjOE, Action Man, Dragon, etc. They are the same supplies we use here at the International Headquarters of Patches of Pride.

The Tape is for adding thickness and opacity to a patch prior to installation.

The Decal Solutions are for aiding in the professional installation of waterslide decals.

The Button Pips are for upgrading and customizing dress uniforms.

The LT bars are for upgrading and customizing berets.

Please Note: We can no longer ship glues through the USPS mail, sorry. You will have to purchase gel-based superglue locally.

With the proper supplies, you'll be customizing like a "Joe Pro" in no time!

Please select from the following:

Patch Tape (1 roll)
(Adhesive backed white cloth tape)

Description: This bright white cloth tape (not plastic) is used to thicken and brighten a patch, primarily before installing onto a dark uniform. It helps the patch to really "pop" visually. Also perfectly simulates the stiffer, thicker velcro-backed patches used by today's armed forces. Particularly great for use with the modern ACU uniforms. We love using this stuff! One 15-foot roll will last you for YEARS!


ITEM # SUPPS1, $4.95 (plus s/h)


Waterslide Decal
Setting Solution
(1 oz. bottle)

Description: Similar, but stronger than the softening solution. The instructions on the backs of the bottles recommend that you use both solutions together. But we've found that it depends on the decal, the surface texture it's going onto, etc. You'll see when you're installing a decal whether it needs a little more "help" chemically or not. Great stuff, just use it more carefully and a LITTLE BIT at a time. A MUST HAVE for pro decal installers--like You! One bottle should you last many years.


ITEM # SUPPS5, $8.95 (plus s/h)


Waterslide Decal
Softening Solution
(1 oz. bottle)

Description: This is the solution we use most often when installing decals on small items like helmets, grenades, etc. It's a gentle softening solution that helps coax the decals down into and onto the surfaces of the toy, helping to eliminate the annoying "silvering" effect of trapped air bubbles. Also used with the stronger setting solution for bigger decal sets that go on vehicles, aircraft, etc. A MUST HAVE for all decal installations. One bottle will last you a very long time!


ITEM # SUPPS4, $8.95 (plus s/h)


E-Z Iron-on
Uniform Button Pips (8)
(Choice of silver or gold tone)

Description: Simple to use, fantastic results. These little beauties perfectly replace any worn or missing buttons on your 1/6th scale dress uniforms (see photo at top of page). All you do is use the tip of your household iron and press the button into position for about 15 seconds. The fabric glue on the back melts and the pip is in place. You have your choice of gold or silver finish and will receive 8 pips per pack. Don't throw old uniforms away. Restore them!


ITEM # SUPPS2, (8 silvertone button pips)
$4.95 (w/ FREE shipping in the U.S!)

TEM # SUPPS3, (8 goldtone button pips)
$4.95 (w/ FREE shipping in the U.S!)

Color Preference (please choose one):


Lieutenant's Beret Bar
(Available in gold or silver tone!)

Description: We LOVE how these look! They're highly polished chrome (or gold)-toned bars that are ideal for decorating your beret cap flashes. Simply apply with a drop of gel-based superglue over the flash patch on your beret for a fantastic effect. Choose from 1st or 2nd Lieutenant versions!

SILVER-tone 1st LT Bar, ITEM # SUPPS6
