Like most of you guys on here I try and use a lot of things I have laying around the house. I've herd a lot of you guys saying you use old credit/gift cards, but when I tried to sand it down it seemed to have film on it. Ive used other plastic materials but haven't tried to paint on them yet.
So my question to you guys is, how does everyone go about prepping the tiny parts and different materials like credit/gift cards, straws, the plastic tabs you use to close your bread, etc. Should I be soaking these in something first then sand?
I usually prep everything first with a scuff pad so the glue and filler have something to stick to. Then when finished I wash the whole model with soapy water and rinse before paint but I had never used foreign plastic before.
Any advice and tips I can get from you guys is always appreciated.
