Default Re: Curing times?

The longer you cure it, the less flexible it will be. I broke an octopus arm off the 3-arm piece, probably the same place as you. It wasn't that brittle; I just dropped it one time too many.

I've found 1 to 2 minutes curing time more than adequate for small, thin things like minis. Make sure to let them completely dry first, or you get a white, powdery sheen on the surface that's hard to remove.

I second the notion that primer is a must.

I'm going to try the water washable resin for my next prints this weekend. I'll report on how it works.
