Maybe this is dumb… but always frugal i want to add more color to my limbs to go with the head i ramped up after assembling Took head off for touch ups but has anyone ever bake baby limbs body glass beads zip ties and all?.Wonderingvif anything will melt or catch on fire …like zip ties
I wouldnt chance it. I know that the glass beads may get hot and melt the vinyl on the inside.
I wouldnt chance the ties or the cloth body.
Use a heat gun instead.
I’d take it apart to paint the limbs. I wouldn’t risk baking it. The only thing you’ll be out is a few zip ties.
Your right i might ruin the limbs and body if the zip ties melt…
I baked with some residual glass beads and was all right. It was enough to line the inside. I wouldn’t bake zip ties. It’s probably best just to remove what u can remove. I even baked with a magnet accidentally. Maybe I was lucky but it just came unglued and fell off.
Good to know magnet wont melt the vinyl or glass either but the zip ties im most worried about so think ill just dissasemble the whole thing
I would definitely take it apart or use heat gun. How are the limbs sealed? I once melted the BB plug. I would not worry about the glass beads inside, but the plugs or if you sealed the limbs with E6000 could be a problem.
I did have plugs .Took the limbs off.
Do it right Thanks for the input.
One thing to add if using heat gun. ( I know you @Rirish already took it apart) If the end of the limb is sealed, sometimes the heat will build up in the limb and melt the vinyl. (Learned the hard way). So you have to be very careful about moving the heat around.
Love hearing all the adds to this topic.Warnings are GOOD !! Better to NOT learn by experience!!
