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.
