I have a problem with the scanspray that came with my MINI which is the AESUB blue.
Its stated as self-vanishing, but on my hand painted action figure, it leaves on some points on the figure a pale/ white coating…
I tried warm water with dishwashing liquid, but it wont come off. its been some month now having that ruined paintjob on the figure, but now I want to ask, if someone expierend the same and maybe have a solution for me? thanks
thanks for your quick answer, that helps. Today I was very confident and used my IPA 99% with a tissue and gently wipe that layer, and a bit of the paint coating, and a bit of paint away… very minimal, but those nasty white spots are gone. I guess you should also try it out with your coins. Maybe IPA 70% is also enough. On my handpainted resin figures I will never use this aesub stuff again. Maybe AESUB transparent … but dont know. I guess scanspray is more ment to be used for the car industry, not for us hobby people. I will look up ATTBLIME also. What product do you from theme?
My coins surface was not dirty , it was destroyed like you put an acid on metal .
It was clean after the spray vanished , but after 2 weeks the reaction happened while stored away .
I am never going to use AESUB again that’s for sure , beside it is too thick and take too much details away .
Comparing AESUB to ATTBLIME is like snowfall to frost .
I do not scan color with MINI as it is not good to scan colors due to blue laser absorption , my favorite is POP2 for scanning with color but then I don’t need 3D spray .
However ATTBLIME do not completely hide the color still allows you to scan with MINI even if the color is not scan friendly like red or green and yellow .
AESUB transparent may still leave the colors too intense to use with MINI as all it do is removing only the shine from the surface . The colors still absorbing the blue light .
I guess you need to figure out what is best for you in this case , as you know best what you need .
Trying things out by yourself will give you the best answer .
I have attblime abp and it removes ok (not fully, after air dried they’re white rests…) with water… I’m still searching for spray alternatives that gives me a thin white coating and doesn’t hurt the paint or paint coating but also could remove easily. Maybe next is dryshampoo…
I never cleaned Attblime with water , why ? It vanishing in 2 hours completely living nothing on the surface , most recommend by engineering companies.
You just need to go the one that vanish in 2 hours . And spray just a little so it is frosted ( not white) as that is too much , Attblime just frosting the surface what is enough to scan even if you see still the color .
And do not run water over it , it need to evaporate on itself , put it in area where the air flow is higher , it will finish faster , I usually put it next to a mini fan and it clean out quickly on its own.
