View Full Version : Modeler beware!

Ok just thought I should warn you guys, be very careful about leaving FIMO polymer clay near any plastics. I put some with my defiler kit and some of the parts(a lot from the chaos accessory sprue, a claw and a leg) are tottal ruined, the plastic is behaving like a latex rubber, it's lost all solidity. :cries: Well this certainly ruined my day very well and I thought about posting this warning here, although it might be a good idea for it to be seen by the WHFB and P&T. Anyway guys and gals DO NOT put FIMO putty near your plastics...

edit: The clay that's still in the maleable shape is dangerous the one I solidifed by applying oven heat to it is fine.

I've heard that before too, also, leaving models for prolonged lengths of time on some types of eraser will cause the same melting pot effect.

This really should be in P&T, like you said, it's not just 40k plastics that are at risk :p.
