fixing warped resin

So i did i had a couple pieces of warped forgeworld stuff laying around and figured i would try to fix it.

Its actually easier than you think.

You just boil water leave the part in for 5 minutes and it bends right into shape.

Hmmm.....

Updates:

1. They like to go back to their previously warped shape as they cool, so you might want to brace them.
2. Hot water fogs testers dull coat.

I used to work for Armorcast and when we had a warped piece we used a hairdryer on a medium setting to warm up the piece. As was mentioned the piece will go back to it's original form by itself. Boiling water's cool but you get more control with the hair dryer and less risk of totally melting the piece.

You're welcome. Just remember to warm the resin slowly or you'll end up with a puddle of mush lol.
