Advice on fixing a figureAdvice on fixing a figureReview

MamaOppaiMamaOppai13 days ago
so I bought a very expensive figure from another mfc seller ITEM #549417
and she sadly came in damaged in a very odd way her wisps around the lance that are rubbery was broken in half at one point

I'm currently in the process of getting a partial refund from the seller over this as i want to try to fix it. so i was wondering what is the best way to go about fixing this cut that will make it least noticable resin perhaps ? the tricky issue is the fact the wisps are so clear im worried it will easily be seen :<

I would use a uv cure epoxy as the cure is instant once exposed to uv light and it is non reactive.

lesser-robot-cat13 days ago#78091107They make clear versions of e6000. It's used a lot for craft jewelry because it retains a rubbery elasticity and is less prone to snapping like superglue. But no matter what you use, go in carefully. With a soft plastic you never know how chemicals will interact with it. You don't want to accidentally melt it! ill defiantly try this out but be super careful

I usually recommend cyanoacrylate glue (superglue) for figure breaks but since you say the part is rubbery then I advise going for 2-part epoxy glue instead. That glue is more "elastic" and should hold better in your case.

As for making the repair less visible, you should use transparent glue and be very careful to put only a tiny amount so that it doesn't squeeze out of the crack when you press the parts together.

Since this is a transparent part it may not be possible to completely hide the repair but how visible it is will also greatly depend on what angle you're looking at it from.

I would use a VERY SMALL dab of Krazy glue (Put it on a toothpick tip and apply a very small amount). Unfortunately, the part that snapped is clear. So, if you were to fix it, there will still be a slight visible crack. Krazy glue dries clear, so it won’t be too bad. I don’t have too many broken figures (around two I think), and I use Krazy glue and a toothpick to fix them.
