mangochutnee Posted June 29, 2013 Share Posted June 29, 2013 One trick to remember (Flit is a good example of this) is that if you want the Bones to bend into a certain form (say, upright) then when you do the boil n' bend trick bend him too far backwards. When the mini eventually settles into its final form, then you'll have closer to what you want because the reversion will be absorbed by the more extreme set angle. Thanks for this advice, I will try it out. I have boiled about eight or nine different figures now and none of them stayed exactly the way I positioned them. I boiled them for two minutes, reshaped while they were "flubbery", and then dunked them into ice water for about five minutes the first time. They looked great, but then overnight all reverted to more or less their original positions. The second time I let them boil longer and sat them in the ice bath for over ten minutes. This worked better for the most egregious models (I got some where the base was parallel rather than perpendicular to the figure) but I still ended up with warped swords etc. Does anyone know if humidity has much to do with it? I live in Denver, CO and it is bone dry out here. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
