Removed the shine

Postby Mrleemur » Mon Aug 14, 2017 1:17 pm

Picked up a Clone Trooper helmet at one of the car boot sales I went to yesterday, which needed a bit of a clean up.

washing up liquid wasn't getting rid of all the sticker residue on the forehead, so I took to a cycle lube to get some solvent on it.

since I did that it has more of a matt than gloss finish to that area (I did it across that whole area).

is there any way to restore the shine?
