Im gonna paint these, im pretty sure they werent split that bad? But the hollow ones are. If you leave your acetoned model hollow and its not translucent colourfabb and exposed to heat frequently or in direct sunlight, then it will most likely split. If its filled or printed with transparent colorfabb it wont, or is way less likely.

    Close ups.... you know I love my close ups!

    Dr Hill from Re-Animator is the only filled model here hence not splitting further. Im pretty sure in fill would help as well. I talked with a few folk and some use modge podge as i use plaster of paris. Might be better but definitely more expensive!!!

     

    These splits can easily be filled with paint or putty. However I wouldn't use putty on detailed parts as its a nightmare to clean up.
