joberg have you tried baby oil on rubber that you spray painted?I used a trick that false nail worker use to apply several coat of nail polish in a short time period: baby oil. It will draw the solvent to the surface.
Just apply the oil with your finger (or dip your entire Baby Yoda head into it) and let it works its magic.
Remove the oil after testing if it's still sticky to the touch. Use a soft cloth. Good luck.
