Welcome to Librarium Online!
I am not sure if this is the right place for this, but it makes to most sence here.
How would I go about removing the yellow side of green stuff from models? My son thought for some reason that the yellow side was some sort of glueing putty and has filled in all of the details plus the joints of a few figures and I am not trying to figure out how to remove it.
Thanks for all of your help on this.
hmm, i used to do a similar thing where i used the blue putty by itself to help stick things together, and when you dont mix the two, they dont harden..if he used the putty to help stick things together, i'd try breaking the 2 parts apart, then try filing off the putty. for details and stuff, maybe try using the tip of an xacto knife (sp?)...
Stick some freshly mixed GS to it then sharply tug away. The yellow or blue component should stick to the GS blob rather than the surface of the miniature.
Erm..may I ask how valuable are those models in question?
Well, as far as "dissolving" greenstuff goes:
"Super-Clean" Engine and Multi-purpose cleaner seems to work well for me. I buy a bunch of models of of E-bay and then strip them down and paint them the way I want them. Super-Clean seems to work wonders on the paint, will soften greenstuff to the point where it won't stick anymore, and tends to break super-glue bonds sometimes. Yet, theres no damage to pewter or plastic parts.
I've never used the greenstuff parts separately though, so I don't know how it will react. My guess it might help. A gallon worth of the the stuff costs $5-$7 US methnks. HERE is more info on the stuff.
Hope that helps!
