I had some issues with a figure I used a 50/50 mixture on, and I need it to dry faster than it is. I was considering pointing a hair dryer (new and unused, of course) at it on the cool setting. Can this be done without wrecking it?

the only thing that has worked for me was to put it in the oven with just the oven light on. It helped - but not a ton. Still took a while to dry.

Good luck - let me know if you try it - would love to know if the hairdryer would work.

I've used a hair dryer before and it worked fine. Just short bursts from fairly far away and on the low setting won't melt it. Good luck!

I put mine in a food dehydrator. It works great.
