    I wouldn't.

    Water down some accetone and use a toothbrush to remove the paint.

    No, it will be goo by morning. I use acetone and a cottonball working in stages.

    Of course, if its a medicom sculpt you probably could get by without removing any paint at all. Medi doesn't lay it on as thick as say older SSC pieces. Just give it a good scrub with dishsoap and you're gold.

    Worst thing you can do buddy , this is what you do to shrink a head and you only leave it in for 1 hour.
    Over night it will stay like putty forever.
    Also you don't really need to strip the Medicom heads anyway.

    Thanks for the advice guys. I only left it in there for like 20 mins. I immediately saw the post melting. But fortunately the sculpt is alright (to a point). It seems a little often, but then again that might be my mind playing tricks on me. If I remember right, Medicom sculpts usually are softer.
