Sticky Infantry: Where Did I Go Wrong?
I bought and painted multiple infantrymen back in the springtime. After painting, I sprayed them with a clear coat and let them dry at room temperature for 7-10 days before boxing them up.
Over the last few months - and especially the last couple of weeks, which have brought quite a bit of rain here - I’ve noticed that these pieces get sticky when the humidity rises above a certain point. They stick to each other, to the plastic chips and to a lesser extent, the map. What did I do wrong, and how can I fix this?
I had a similar situation for some pieces I painted. I chalked it up to some paints or coatings are simply not compatible with the plastics of the pieces.
The pieces I had this issue with were not OOB, but aftermarket units (Airfix infantry units, IIRC).
This may or may not be related to your problem. Hope it helps.
Thanks for the reply, Navymule. The pieces I’m having problems with are Caesar Miniatures, so you may be on to something.
Testors Dull Coat will usually take care of the stickey ness
I’ll try that. Thanks for the tip!
