Re: News from Model Shapeways & UPS

I don't own a media blaster, only an air brush. I expect the media blaster would be more expensive than a big can of Bestine...
I've found a store (Dick Blick) that probably carried 4 oz cans of Bestine, but it's 2 1/2 hours away... Or I can pay shipping, $4 for the can, $10 shipping... that's almost what I could get the big can for!

What about media blasting it with Baking Soda?

I would suspect that you could go back to Micheal's, read the caution
information on the label to find out what's in there then go to a
hardware or paint store and get something that will do the job for a
lot less money.
Example: Fingernail polish remover = acetone.

I have two of the underframes, and I've heard that Bestine rubber
cement thinner is the best way to clean the waxy residue off. I've
been trying to think of other ways to clean them... and finally broke
down and went to Michael's yesterday to pick up some Bestine. But...
it was $17 a pint! I'm thinking this may be my only chance I'll ever
use Bestine... But I was willing to spend maybe $5, not $17. What
other methods work for cleaning Shapeways parts prior to gluing/painting?
