need help with paint on superglue!
Posted in Custom Workstation
I'v been highly impressed by this site and the customizers are phenomenal! awesome work guys! anyway...I figured this would be the best place to ask for advice. So, here goes-
I have a moviemasters dark knight batman whose wrist joints are stuck. I was ok with it until I came across the whole hair dryer trick and tried it out on the figure after doing it on a non precious figure which actually worked. What happened was, I heated the wrist and in turn made the thumb ,which was stuck to the fingers held back( probably manufacturing fault) causing the fingers and thumb to separate, which is fine but then what happened was that the little thin layer of plastic between the thumb and the index finger tore and got separated but did not come off. What I did was, used superglue to fix the small thing back into place. The superglue caused a small white mark( not too small) and I wasn't happy with that obviously, so I painted that small bit of superglue using reeves acrylic black paint since you don't get tamiya or testors here and I had no other option! my questions are- the paint's been fine for so long..but I'm scared it might wear off eventually..do I seal it with a matte sealer or gloss sealer or something or should I not bother about it? will the paint wear off of the superglue?
