    Hey guys,

    I've used squadron green putty to fill a few gaps and I'm now ready for primer. I would like to wash the model before painting to get rid of fingerprint oils and putty dust.

    My question is, can I get dried putty wet, or will this cause it to soften and fall out?

    Cheers

    B

    Not a problem bob , the dried green.stuff is waterproof , it dries by evaporation of a solvent so water wont affect it. I always use water during sanding of filler the only thing im careful about is to make sure its totally dry after sanding before the primer goes on , cheers tony
