I have a black and gold Emperor with a bad repair on one of his wings a missing horn and he is quite dirty. The repair is firmly set and I’m afraid I’ll damage him further if i try to remove it. I’ve seen techniques to soften old glue that was used on porcelain but I’m not sure if it would work on gypsum. He also needs a good cleaning and lost most of his luster, I’m assuming from age. Water alone doesn’t seem to do much but I’m reluctant to do a chemical cleaning trial and error with him. I’m hoping some of the more seasoned Windstone people can help!
Dawn dish liquid and a semi stiff bristle brush is what I use for deep cleaning. Don’t dunk the windstone directly in the water.
I haven’t found much for glue softening agents that done negatively effect the gypsum and or the paint. I generally have to rebreak a piece to fix it if it was poorly repaired.
I find black and gold is one of the worst finishes to keep clean mostly because its a matte finish.
Got a busted dragon? There isn't a Windstone I can't fix! - firstname.lastname@example.org
