EMERGENCY! Tama Painting

Recommended Posts

HI I HAVE A TINY BUT REALLY MAJOR PROBLEM!! :o So, I have the pink swirl mini. The swirls are gone. Yeah, already. So... this morning I saw some dirt on my tama (on the pink area around the screen). I... made the mistake of scratching it with my fingernail. *winces* I scratched off some of the paint too. So, it's... middle of screen > left > SCRATCH Uhh... HELP IT'S A FAIRLY SMALL THING BUT IT'S REALLY BUGGING ME!!! Idk if I should risk painting it (scarrrry) or scratch it all of. I was hoping I could keep that bit, otherwise it's a pink tama with light pink buttons. But it's bugging me so much!! What do I do? (I have normal paints and acrylics - well, gouache too)

Others on this forum have mentioned that acrylics work on tamas, but they tend to scratch off after a while. If you want to preserve it and get a shiny finish, you'll probably have to use some sort of varnish on it.

Plastic spray paints like Krylon work too as shown here and here.

 

Tamagirl327 does custom tamas with what I think is acrylic.

Just don't use nail polish because it can cloud the screen or damage the plastic. People have used it with success though.

It seems to be an unfortunate trait of the 20th Anniversary Minis that the printing on them comes off really easily. Mine only lives on my desk, and yet it still has a couple of scratches to the logo on it.

Huh. All minis then? Cuz I was thinking, I've seen old P's with flowers and stuff, but their designs are still intact. xD Ah well. I'm just happy to see little Mametchi bouncing around my screen. :)

A few arrows on my blue clock face mini have worn off which means it now has less of its paint than my P1 of the same design that was probably owned by kid. I wasn't rough with my mini either and the exact spot it wore of was near the top where I would pick it up. I'm not sure how I would rank the paint durability as it seems Tamagotchis in general are more prone to paint coming off. I was planning to take my mini apart, pop of the screen, and paint the front with clear nail polish to hopefully protect the remaining design. Since I don't plan to ever remove the nail polish - which I could see being a problem as wet nail polish can be a substitute for nail polish remover - the worst I can see is the paint smudging a little bit - probably because wet nail polish can act like nail polish remover. I'd imagine after it dried there wouldn't be any further problems.

      So, I have the set of Tamagotchis called "Tamagotchu", I believe, and I really don't understand how they work too well.  I know that they need to be connected every once in a while, but it seems that sometimes when I connect them they get mad at each other?  Does anyone know what this is and what's happening?

      I need help! >.<
      I'm buying a new Tama, but I can't decide on whether I want the Meets or the On. I know they're the same with the language being the only difference, but here's where my debate comes in:
      1.) I love the Meets packaging! The one from the On isn't as exciting for when I first open my tama. I know the packaging isn't everything, but like keeping things like that (I have all of my other packages from my other tama's too. aha)
      2.) I know some Japanese, but I'm fluent in English. (Obviously.) I like knowing what is being said between different characters so I wouldn't be able to do that with the Meets, but I LOVE the Meets glitter in the plastic on the shell. The pearl is pretty for the On, but ... idano, man. Something about that glitter. >:P
      3.) I really really REALLLLLLY want the Sanrio Meets, but again... I won't be able to see the convos between my characters and can the meets connect to the on tama's? (You know.. because one is in English and the other is in Japanese..)
      and 4.) ... is it possible for the app for the meets to work in the US with a Meets instead of an On Tama?

      I'll try to keep this guide as short and detailed as possible.
      So, I am assuming you want a Pochitchi. ( ) This guide is for the original English 1996-1997 P2 Tamagotchi.
       
      After you hatch your egg and you are past the baby stage, which lasts one hour, you should have a green child named a Tonmarutchi. You'll have the Tonmarutchi for 72 hours, and you need to give it good care. If you take bad care of it you'll raise a Hashitamatchi. If you raise a Hashitamatchi, you won't be able to obtain a Pochitchi, and need to hatch a new egg if you still want that Pochitchi. If you take good care of your Tonmarutchi, you should get a Tongaritchi. This is a teen. To finally get your Pochitchi, you'll have to take almost perfect care, but not perfect care, of your Tongaritchi. I would try to take perfect care of it and purposely do some care mistakes. Eventually, if you've done the guide correctly, you should have your ! I know, easier said than done.
       
      To find more information about Pochitchi visit http://tamagotchi.wikia.com/wiki/Pochitchi if you haven't done so.
      Thanks.

      hey, i remember finding a very old tripod site that houses some tamagotchi emulators but 99% of them aren't able to work with my laptop depsite them being from 1999 or newer. i can link it if anyone wants to check it out or just google "tamagotchi emulators" which that website should pop up.
