Duke -

Do you have any ACRYLIC paint thinner, such as the stuff Testors puts out for it Model Master acrylic paints?
If you do, try a paper towel DAMPENED with that thinner (NOT wet), and gently rub.
I'm thinking acrylic thinner, because I use the acrylics almost exclusively, and I've found that it has no effect on REGULAR resin castings, but it really cleans up just about anything non-oily on them.
Also, if you're concerned about the thinner possibly damaging the resin or the paint, try Dawn dish detergent. I use a 50/50 mix of that and window cleaner when cleaning resin casts before painting, and it works well. However, if you go the Dawn route, be prepared for LOTS of rinsing or LOTS of bubbles if you get enthusiastic!

Good luck, guy.

See ya!

I believe Stefan posted that the River sets and Lake sets "water" is made of a hard resin rather than the soft, sticky resign in the old Cavern sets.

So if we have a few old cavern sets we should put glossy coat on them?
