Title: CMC school of friendship clean up
Post by: pyrodarknessanny on April 04, 2019, 09:33:39 AM

I am not a fan at all of any of the extra paint that  some of the ponies get.
here's my cleaned up SoF CMC ponies

that mark on sweetie bells shoulder is a defect in the plastic.
if you go to do this , just note that the acetone also removes the gloss / shine of the plastic.

They look wonderful! I feel tempted to pick this set up myself and try, but I'd be so afraid of accidentally getting it on their symbols or eyes.... do you have any tips on how to avoid erasing paint you don't want to get rid of?

Aw, they're cute now! Especially Apple Bloom. I'm indifferent to the pose normally but it's really cute filly-sized. :) The bodies look better matte too, I think.

I would think covering up the eyes and cutie marks with something like tape and/or paper, no? These look pretty simple to clean up, it's just their legs and torso. Compared to the Cutie Mark Magic ponies with stuff all over their eyes...

My secret is to just go slowly.
And to use a thick brand of paper towel , make up removers and q tips dampened with acetone. 

You can also use blu tak to cover the areas you want to avoid.
