Cavernous Passages Pools

Post by promind » Fri Sep 07, 2018 1:26 am

So I just purchased a cavernous passages set off of eBay. The pools of water seems to be sticky to the touch, a bit soft and tacky- no smooth water puddle that I was expecting. has anyone experienced this before, and any ideas on how to fix or improve?

I would love to help but no knowledge of resin. Lots of those people here though.

I have five Cavernous Passageway sets and they have lived through high heat and humidity in an attic over several summers as well as freezing cold in a non-insulated garage and I have never seen anything like that in any of the passage pools. One of them is a very old bow-tie set and the others are somewhat newer non-bow-tie sets.

Are you 100% sure they are original Dwarven Forge and not a recast? I unknowingly bought a recast set that did not come in a box many years ago that I have since disposed of, though he water effects still did not look like that. :?

It sounds like someone added some kind of water effect, The clue I am going buy is soft. Sticky sounds like oil based or sugar?. Try to wash hit with vinegar. See if someone spilled a coke in it.

Wash it. Let it dry in the sun right side up. Then tell us what you see

It looks to me like something has been put on top of the clear resin. The clear resin is a hard resin, not soft.

I did not mention that water could harm the felt paper. It would not be a good idea to immerse the tile. Use a spray bottle.

Or a Q-tip if you want to be extra careful. Scrub one of the pools with water first, then move to vinegar if that doesn't work, etc. The puddle should be smooth, and you don't want to scratch the resin.

I have 2 passage sets, and the water effects are all hard-ish, no tackiness. That said I have cleaned them with a white vinegar-water solution (similar to what I'd clean my hardwood floors with) using a small cloth applicator in the past, and I've done this simply because of use, and the water effects seem to need a bit of cleaning .... None of them are soft however.
