I am going to preposition this with the fact that I have never stripped a mini....

 

I have never heard of anyone boiling or doing anything with water to strip a mini. Is this common or even advised anywhere (nothing I have read in the forum as mentioned this method from what I can remember) or was this just a "quick try gone wrong" sorta deally?

I actually looked at some of the Reaper minis...

 

The Dracolich would make a great piece to toss in as random bits.

The Giant Eagle, Guardian Dragon, Amber Dragon, Narthalyssk could be modified to make it look like half of it's body is stuck and it's flapping desperately to get out.

There are also many mage figures that could make it look really cool as if summoning the Dracolich out of the tar pit.

 

You can take this mistake and make it into something completely unique.

 

I can just sticking the Dracolich into the mire and then using greenstuff to make it look like tar is oozing off the bones.

 

Oh, the possibilities.

 

I FEEL THE NEED TO PAINT AND CREATE!

  Melted lead isn't really dangerous either.  Except for being really hot of course.

yeah, my grandfather has been working closely with molten lead for ... probably at least 40 years - and he's quite healthy.

(He's a traditional typographer (among other things) - he designs and casts his own type (fonts), has all the old printing presses to use them too ...)

Lead is not as dangerous to adults as it is to young children. Lead affects brain development, and kids under the age of five or so are still growing their brains, so even low levels of lead are harmful at that age. Thus the ban on lead-based paint, which babies would happily chew off of their crib rails. Adults need a much higher lead dose to be affected -- the risk to adults is not retarded brain development, but plain old blood poisoning.

Lead is also still used in auto body applications, usually on the older stuff. Just a quick FYI
