The most evident difference is the spare resin. This surplus is essential in order to produce a resin figure and even if much of that remaining resin was removed in the factory , the rest will have to be removed at home.


Instrumentos de trabajo

In order to remove the spare resin you just need a sharp stylus, a candle or a burner, a working board and a sander.


You will use the flame to warm the blade of the stylus, and therefore the hot metal will cut the resin easily, removing the remaining resin from the figure.

Then you will have to file and sand down the mould lines as usual.

Once the figure is ready, you will add the final touch with putty if there is some little bubble.
If you want to instale a bout to secure the figure to the base, do it now.

The figure is ready now. You will wash it with soapy water and once dry you will be able to paint it.

Big sized pieces

When you have a piece of considerable size, such these of vehicles or stages, it is advisable to use a different technique, which will be much more easy and simple. In this case, you will only need your stylus which will have its point slightly cut.
