I don't know if this is widely known or not, but I figure it'd be a good idea to share this, so it does not potentially affect other peoples' figures too! :(
I decided to use Sculpey modeling clay to help prop up one of my little strap figures, because it doesn't stand. I figured it'd be perfect.
Though unfortunately while deciding to move the figure a few days ago after it sitting on the clay for about a week, I noticed that the paint had been degraded by the clay (this is after I wiped away the sticky paint remains):
It really sucks, but I'm not too
down about it, after all she's only ever seen from the front and I plan on replacing the paint. It could've been worse. >.<;
After talking to my friend about it, we've discovered it's because of the plasticizer in the clay (keeps it from drying out). I dunno if I'm just dumb for not knowing about/thinking about this or what. But like I said. It seems note-worthy.
In other news, I've just finished sculpting a Pangoro and I'll be sharing the completed product with you guys. :) If you want a preview, lookie here: http://gyazo.com/521dec09332614a6e8c6dbbd02c0213e
