I make a daily to do list on twitter so I can keep myself focused and know I am achieving things. On my list today was wash and assemble the NL guy, and I was asked about how to clean resin. I decided to do so in a blog post in case there are other people out there who don’t know how to do this but don’t want to ask. Here we go, a step by step guide to cleaning up resin:
1 – Equipment: You need the following – A bowl of luke-warm water, an old toothbrush, some washing up liquid and a tea-towel or other type of towel and the mini you want to clean up:
2 – Put a small drop of the detergent into the water.
3 – Add the mini to be cleaned up.
4 – Use the toothbrush to scrub over all parts of the mini. Try not to be too vigorous else you’ll end up with breakages and that would be a disaster. There are no pictures of this as using a phone with wet hands is going to be troublesome.
5 – Place clean parts on tea-towel to dry.
6 – Throw away the water and wash your hands. Resin tasting water is gross and leaves a weird taste in your mouth as well.
I hope this helps. I may well write one on bending miniatures back into shape. Resin is pretty easy to reform and it is oddly satisfying as well.
I also realise that my Reaver Titan is made of resin… it has many, many parts, some large… I need a bigger bowl.

Is the comment about the taste of resin water from experience? Just curious. And this is much the same as how I do mine, the only difference being that I use the bathroom sink.
Good luck on the Reaver and hopefully we see it registered on the Titan Owners Club blog. I’ll have to watch yours to see how it comes along.
It was from experience this morning while making the tutorial. It was after I had thrown the water out and neglected to wash my hands. oops!
The Reaver is still in the box. I have wanted one for a long time but I am scared of putting it together yet – soon though. Soon I will be brave and face it.
