Dip the part

Tip: Wear gloves while dipping models to keep the bath clean and prevent mold growth.

  1. Gently submerse the part in the bath for at least 5-10 seconds or until bubbles subside.
  2. Slowly remove the part and hold it above the bath for 5-10 seconds to allow a majority of the excess water to run off. Rotate the part to help the water escape from any cavities or crevices.
  3. Move the part to the paper towels and gently dab the bottom of it on the dry paper towels.

    Tip: Avoid wiping the excess water on the top surfaces with a paper towel as this will compromise surface finish.

  4. Place the dipped part on the wax paper and allow it to air dry for 1-2 hours before handling.

    Tip: A fan or hair dryer can be used to harden the surface layers more rapidly. This allows for quicker handling. Note the parts may still be weak, so handle with care.
