    Non ACETONE Nail Polish Remover cleans HT head sculpts

    There u go. A confirmed method tried and tested this evening.

    Jediguy had his HT Ripley melt when he tried ACETONE so guys stay away from ACETONE when striping HT head sculpts.

    Cheers

    I wouldn't know J3D1. I have only managed to strip the HT TACP head sculpt and a bootleg Lincoln Burrows head sculpt.

    Non-Acetone nail-polish remover will work with almost all soft plastics and a few hard ones, too (as in hard-plastic miniatures a la GW). Also, I've used it on resin with good results.

    And the trip after the chore is worth it!

    Re: Non ACETONE Nail Polish Remover cleans HT head sculpts

    Sorry for bumping this insanely old thread, but... I'm not having much luck removing my Phicen heads' facepaint with non-acetone nailpolish remover. Some of it came off, but around the eyes it's not working. The lashes and eyelid creases are still there. And I have been rubbing hard for ages now
