    I didn’t know if anyone has come across this before. I was squeezing out some of the Vallejo putty into my figure and all of a sudden some squirted out of the seem from the back of the tube
    Does anyone know how to get the putty residue off a t-shirt? I scraped it off and put some ice cubes on it. I appreciate any input

    So long as it hasn't cured for too long, water. Soak it and keep rubbing it.

    Thank you. I had put some ice cubes on the stain initially based on something I saw on Google.

    That sounds like removing chewing gum. I've use water to remove Vallejo Plastic Putty from areas of models when using it. Have to be fairly quick though as it starts to go rubbery. Doesn't fully cure for a few days though.

    I had put it in the wash. There’s slight stain left. I tried using my fingernail to scratch out out, not much luck. A reminder to myself to put my hobby apron on before I start working on a model.

    Just don't wear your fancy stuff. My jeans used to always have stripes from wiping my brushes on them

    Don't feel bad, had a similar mishap and got green putty on Coco the Wonder Dog. Didn't notice until it had dried. IMG_20220720_110157.jpg

    I always wear a apron !

    Hope you get it all removed , think in future you could freeze the item ( think that works with chewing gum )

    Be careful of superglue!!
