My new Scrumptious deflocked finally. New pic.
« on: July 11, 2018, 03:01:36 AM »
This lady arrived in a lot.  Lipstick on her mouth and these horrible brown stains.

The flocking itself doesn't appear stained, it looks like it is underneath on her skin.  Do you think, if I'm lucky, whatever it is has just stained her glue and she may be okay under the flocking if I chose to deflock her?

Oh wow, that lipstick . . .

There's a good chance she's okay under the flocking.  The layer of glue often prevents stains from getting to the actual body.

What LM said :) You could also try and sun fade her if you don't want to deflock?

It looks like someone tried to pretty her up by adding blush and lipstick plus a diamond resembling Seashell and Bubbles. Phew!

Wow. That would be amazing if deflocking rid her of all those stains and made her like new! I hope it does, if you go for it.

Oh ouch! Have you tried washing her yet? As you will need to get her wet to deflock anyway you don't have much to lose in trying to wash 'it' out first.

Yes, washing didn't help.  Then, trying to deflock, it looks like the lipstick on her lips, its just that on these spots it looks like somehow it got under, and not on, the flocking.

After we got in the water, our brown spots looked red just like the lipstick on her mouth.
Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

I've talked about deflocking before, but never got the nerve to actually do it.  Here I've plunged in trying the hot water soak and rub method.  Here is where I decided if must be lipstick, cause it's greasy and smearing around, not coming off.  I think if I had done less rubbing, I would have had less staining later.
Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

Guys, the soak and rub method, ain't cutting it.  I'll be rubbing for months.  Time for the big guns!  Brought out the acetone.  Immediate results.  Yeah baby!  Most of those red spots gone in minutes.  I wish I started this on her forehead.  From my rubbing earlier, she is going to still have a faint stain.

However, despite getting good results with acetone in a few minutes, I don't know when I'll finish.  Trying the acetone outdoors, here in Georgia in the Summer, I was getting eaten alive by mosquitos and the humidity here I was pouring sweat.  But so far looks like Scrumptious may get to live!

Yeah, deflocking is SUPER tedious if you want to make sure it's done well. I've done a few, and goodness!

But it's so rewarding in the end. I think once you're done you'll be so happy with the results!

What an improvement! I'm sure she will look gorgeous when you are done, and perhaps the stain will sunfade out?

Help me!  After starting Scrumptious and getting good results, I also started on a Ribbon with thin flocking who had been attacked with lipstick.  So I have two ponies who are almost done, except eyes, symbols and blush.  I was reading on another recent deflocking post about using alcohol on symbols.  Either this isn't working for me, or I'm not trying hard/long enough?  Ribbon's eye hasn't melted off, but the edge of her bottom lashes are pulling loose, as if I tried I could peel her whole eye off.  So I need to finish the job and not lose Ribbon's eye.
Somewhere else said use Jasco, and what I've found online in trying to find Jasco is that it is just a brand of acetone.  So I don't want to use that.
Help?

I'm really sorry but this has never happened to me so I can't advise. However I will follow the thread so that I can also learn the answer when someone does (hopefully) tell you why this is happening.

I only used soap, 100% acetone and surgical spirits (rubbing alcohol) when deflocking. With the major work being done with hot water, liquid soap and elbow grease. Did you wash your ponies immediately after using any chemicals? Perhaps the chemicals reacted with each other and the vinyl and the paint if you didn't? Or something happened to the ponies in their previous lives to cause this now?

Nightglider, that's all I used as well.  And I always kept rinsing with water so the acetone wouldn't stay on long.  My rubbing alcohol was 70%, and I thought maybe it's not strong enough.  I work at an animal hospital, so I checked our alcohol at work to see if it's stronger, but its 70% as well.
