So I’ve used gundam markers for lining before but was looking to be a little more detailed and advanced. I decided to do panel washing with my Strike Rouge Ootori that i just started building. I started on the head and began the process. I used a small amount of black enamel paint with more enamel thinner (can’t really tell the ratio but more thinner). After applying I realized i should have let it dry, but i noticed pieces started to crack.
One of the sidings cracked, the inner portion cracked open and the crown (V) pretty much cracked in half. I was wondering if the enamel is the cause of this, it is literally “melting” the plastic to it or is it something else. Ive looked online for other options like lighter fluid but most of them suggested the thinner. Did I use to much? help?
