How to fix glue mixed with paint
Posted by MediocreModelMaker on Sunday, April 22, 2018 3:24 PM

greetings all!


I got rushed and mistakenly put too much glue on a joint and it bled througah the joint and mixed with the paint. Sad

any suggestions on how to fix this issue would be appreciated. Thank you all for reading, I look forward to any replies.

you will most likely have to sand the glue and that bit of paint of and re-paint/glue.

good luck,

I think JJFlyer hit the nail on the head.

Even if the glue somehow managed not to affect the color in the area in question, the change in texture and reflectance will almost certainly be obvious. Paint alone won't hide it; you'll likely have to sand and then repaint.
