Dusting TFs

Postby rodrigorajao » Thu Jan 17, 2008 5:33 pm

How do you guys go about dusting your TFs?? I use a clean soft cloth and compressed air, which works fine on the easy spots, but I find dust encrusted in the more detailed figures (like say, Cybertron Primus) and I can't reach some of it.

How do y'all do it?? TYIA.

My shelves of TF's seem to attract dust faster than anything else in my house, man it pisses me off.

I use this special cloth it's like, "ionicly charged" or something so it pulls the dust onto itself.

Use a large artists brush with natural bristles.

Personally, I use a modelling paintbrush to dust them. I don't know the make or size of the top of my head, I think it might be a Tamiya product, but I can check when I get home from work today.

Weapon: Switch Blade Tail
I use one of the brush attachments on my Dremel tool. Sucks up and blows away the loose stuff, and helps me dig out the caked dust from the nooks and crannies.
