    Best way to wash Resin

    How do you wash your resin models and parts with the best results? Before or after trimming?

    wash after trimming, otherwise when you trim you put grease on to the model from your hand
    Everything you have been told is a lie!

    After I trim, then I place it all in a strainer and run soapy water bath for it, then rinse.
    You can also check at the hobby store for commercially available cleaning agents, designed to destroy that nasty, nasty mold release agent.
    To bad they could not make mold release agent and primer as one substance!

    Just to add my 2cents. Exactly what Cher says for the same reason.
    Though if you wash, and then trim, just wash again.

    I found regular dishwashing soap works just fine.

    Some people also like to "seal" the surface of the resin with watered down PVA glue. This supposedly helps the paint stick to the resin better. Personally however I was always too lazy for that. I found a good (or rather two thin) layer(s) of spray paint work just as well.
    Shut up and play.

    Now I've been such an idiot as to assemble my resin models before washing them. Is it enough just to bathe them in dishwasher-water and let them "soak", or should I brush them with a toothbrush too? And how long should they soak, is it damaging to let them soak too long?

    Warm to hot water whould be enough to really do the work, a mild soap (just a little bit, I only put a drop in a washtub ~1 to 2 gallons) You're really just trying to get rid of most of the mould wax.
