Washing resin bodies

RELATED TOPICS: RESIN
Tip: Here’s a quick tip for washing resin bodies:  

I rinse all of the pieces (don’t forget the interior) with warm water, then scrub them with Dawn dishwashing liquid and a toothbrush. That’s followed by a scrubbing with Westley’s Bleche-Wite and another warm-water rinse.  

That’s all well-known stuff; now here’s the tip:  

After the pieces are dry, do a “tape test” by applying some masking tape across various parts of the body. If the tape doesn’t stick, there is still mold- release on the body, and it has to be rewashed. When the tape sticks, it’s primer time!
