Contains 5 different types of cats, unpainted, 3D printed in high detail resin.
How to work with 3D printed resin parts?
Be carefull when manipulating 3D printed parts, they can be brittle!
Carefully remove the sprue.
Start sanding where needed. The 3D printing process builds up a product in micro-layers. Those layers sometimes remain slightly visible in some areas (especially under magnification), they can be sanded out with a medium sandpaper (like 600 grit), followed by a fine sandpaper (like 1000 grit).
You must apply a primer first before checking if you have sanded enough! Without primer it is hard to check. If needed repeat the process until you are satisfied.
Now it is ready paint and weather.
Tip for sanding very small and difficult areas
Cut a small strip of sandpaper 1 - 2 mm wide, fold it and grab it with a tweezers (not the one with a pointy tip, but the one with a flat 1 - 2mm broad tip). Hold it in such a way that the fold is sticking out for only a tiny fraction (make sure it is the fold that is sticking out, and not the loose ends of the strip). Keep holding the tweezers like that and move over the surface you want to sand. When the sandpaper is clogged, make a new fold in an area of the strip that has not been used before, and continue like before.
