Remember this face? She's a 1993 My Pretty Topsy Tail made by Tyco, in case you missed seeing it before.
Well the face had a wash! I used 100% Acetone (available at Bunnings) with Swisspers make up remover pads to wipe off most of the paint, then Swisspers cotton tips (both available from the pharmacy), and finally to get into the really tight crevices, I used Mr Hobby GT69 tips (available from Brunel Hobbies).
The eyes came up okay, but as much as I tried, I could not get it all out of the mouth, if you look closely you can see some deep in the creases.
Next was a quick wipe over with Isocol (Isopropyl Alcohol from the pharmacy) just to remove any residue, then once dry (only takes a few seconds), a fine spray of Mr.Hobby Super Clear UV Cut (also available from Brunel's). Later this week I will begin her face up.
P.S. I also removed the paint from her shoes.
