The key to shrinking boots is to not touch them once you pull them out. They will actually be a bit bigger then when you started but will shrink down as they dry out. I usually leave them alone for about a week 5 to 7 days. Any sooner and you get what you have going on....:dizzy

All say this again...the key is to NOT TOUCH your item for at least a week after you take it out of the acetone bath. If you touch it, chances are you will rip it or mold it into something you do not want. (especially head sculpts)

Acetone removes a lot of the plastic chemicals used in their production. Plastic it self will off gas these chemicals and depending on the quality you can see or smell it. (cheaper the worse it gets)

It is a great way to reduce the size of some items (top of the German jack boots *Dragon*)

I believe the OP's boots cracked because he touched them while they were still wet or not yet fully dried out...
