Any way to reshape resin?

I bought a bag of resin bones from the local costume shop and a few of them are seriously warped. I was once told that if you boil cured resin it'll soften it up but I've never tried it. Is this true?

I've heated fiberglass / resin up with a hairdryer before and managed to reshape it, so I think 'yes'. :)

I've used a heat gun (paint stripping kind) to get resin hot and bend it. I wouldn't boil it. Me no likely the boiling water. :confused

:lol


Good luck.

Resin yes. The older it gets the more brittle it gets but it can be heated and bent, fairly indefintely.

Fiberglass after about a year will be very difficult (if not impossible) to reform.

I've had good results with both a heat gun and boiling water. Just pay attention to where your fingers are ;)
