So, I've had my Shapeways Trivia for several months now and am only now going to have some time to start painting him up. I started to read some of the Shapeways forums to get a feel so painting 3D printed material but I just figured I should post here since many of you have experience with painting Shapeways products. The main body is in Strong White Flexible Polished and the head is in Frosted Ultra Detail. I read on the Shapeways forums that you should wash the parts before painting. This would mean washing the SWF parts with soapy water and a toothbrush and the FUD head in acetone for 3 minutes. Is this step really necessary? Next I know you would need to prime the figure so I guess I want recommendations from you guys about what primers you like to use, what type of paints work best, and what type of clear coats you put on top to seal the paint. I read that one person recommends using clear varnish if the figure will be handled a lot, is that what you guys use? Any and all help will be greatly appreciated. This is such a fun little figure and I want to bring him to life with colors!
