WHAT THE HELL!?!?!?!

Posted in Custom Workstation

SO I'm working on an icons Deadpool get all the painting done and decide to spray on my top coat. I go back upstairs and watch me some TV for about and hour more than enough time for the spray to dry. Touch the figure and hes perfectly dry so I bring him upstairs and start putting on his gear and I notice that everything started melting off anywhere that I touched and the worst part is it left deep finger print impression. Has this ever happened to anyone else?

I do the same thing with all my alternators and have never had a problem, so I think you pegged it on the head CK. Something in the Spiderman Plastic amkeup must have reacted with the final ingredient the Acrylic seal.

I my expiriences with painting and striping with various plastics, paints and acetones, you definatly had a chemical reaction. Some reactions happen instantly and others take awhile. Not everything is compatible with each other. Even two identical figures may have a slightly different plastic compostion. Some paints and acetones will simply attack the plastic. A good test for a new brand of paint is to spray a piece of styrofoam. If it eats the styrofoam it'll most likely harm the plastic. Most plastic and styroform have a common ingredent, styrene (I can't spell) . Hope this helps. For those who know this already sorry for wasting your time. Here's a fun side note. Take some model car glue and put a drop on some styrofoam.

You could use sculpey to fill in the dents and paint over it again...

Not a clue . I usually get ticked off and throw things. It doesn't fix anything, but it feels good. I remeber I put a top coat on a model and it "dried" but then it was tacky for NO REASON. I .... can't talk about it.

Used to happen to me so I stopped using a top coat. If you use quality paints you shouldn't need one. If something scratches or hits your figure with enough force to mess up the paint, I've found that it's going to do it whether you but on a top coat or not.
