Partially Peeled off Eye Decals (Solved sort off)

So had a McGuyver moment over the weekend when my rather dusty ITEM #61328 which I left her soaking along with some of older nendos who were "sweating" Plasticizer in the typical 10 water to 2 detergent ratio of liquid detergent overnight.

Shock of my Figure collecting life occurred when I was when I was washed the detergent off and was drying her and found that 70% of her left eye (blue part) had peeled off with around 30% of her right eye decal haad peeled off too. 9SO she now looks like she has a cataract over he left eye

So as an emergency fix I took the left over eye decals from ITEM #251911 and water slide it over the affected part.

So now she looks like this

A tad odd but better than having cataract looking eyes. Would like to ask MFC if any one can provide a nice set of Blue Hiroe Rei blue eyes so that I can have it printed out over decal paper for a more permanent fix.

Am currently also mulling Stylet eye decals as an alterntive pemanent fix as well. :-?

DonkeyBlonkey (Il y a 2 mois) #23608094It varies. I know Nendos it's confirmed their eyes are stamped on with layers of paint.
For plasticizer sweating, I'd recommend just getting a fine soft brush with warm water + soap, cleaning for up to 7 minutes then drying, then applying a matte or gloss coat to seal it.


Thanks for the Advice I'll try that next time they start seating again :D

Devastator001 (Il y a 2 mois) #23607693ya agree on that prolly should have soaked her in a more 10 to 1 ratio if I was planning to brush off accumulted dust. I only resort to long soaking if the dust doesn't immediately wash off with regular soapy water.
Although on a more positive note it's a nice confirmation of a long standing theory/suspicion that I have over figure eyes that they use decals for mass produced eyes on figures.

DonkeyBlonkey (Il y a 2 mois) #23578321One thing I learned in plamodeling is never soak things in any stripping agent for long periods of time unless you're planning on stripping the paint entirely

That's actually a pretty ingenious fix...
Sorry to hear about the damage though.
