    Which compound to use to clean the apoxie sculpt off of the glass eyes?
    I have put my nictating membranes on and now cleaning up so that I can move on to painting and finishing.
    Denatured alcohol? Lacqur thinner? Windex?

    Just had a major brain fart!!! :eek:

    Cured apoxie you will have to scrap off with a scapel blade .. If it's uncured windex or any solvent will do it

    Apoxie safety solvent is your best bet. All the ones you mentioned will work.

    X2! Once it has set, scraping with a scalpel is much more effective than trying to remove it with solvents.
  6. Windex works great!
    Denatured algohol works well too
