How to colouring the model printed with PLA?

Recommended Posts

Hey there,

I wanted to give one of my prints (well two actually) a more finished look by painting them to look more like the real deal. (2 cats from my friend) Since the print had some holes in the top I had to be a little bit creative.

We had a little bit of Chloroform lying around here so by dissolving some colored pieces of PLA in that I was able to close the holes and give the cats their spots. I must say that I only painted the brighter colors with the Chloroform mixture as it did not dissolve very easily, The black was done by dissolving ABS in Acetone :)

Were you able to get your model painted the way you wanted to?
