    I was prepping him for dye, and like an idiot, put the acetone in first. This happened almost immediately.

    HAHAH!! MAN THAT LOOKS SICK!!! That should be a custom base for something.

    BTW everyone. If it does that to plastic, imagine what is does to your liver, skin, and other organs. Please use caution with that stuff.

    Be careful...ruining a toy is one thing...this is dangerous, flammable stuff and should not be used without adult supervision and precautions.

    Use a respirator made for paint, thinners and other solvents. Gloves and safety goggles.

    Adding acetone to hot water can make it splash too, so only do it in a safe place, away from flame.
