I like to use the nail polish remover that my sister uses(she's 7 and already using nail polish!) It's called swisper's nails if any one is asking, but it gets sticky and makes the print go all bleary, and there is really no way to get accuracy, so it is only good to remove large areas. :(

Nail polish remover has been known to do bad things to Lego, like melt or discolor it. Do not use it.

Yes indeed. Nail polish remover is very bad stuff.

Thanks for the warning. I'll stop using nail polish remover, any substitutes recommended?

I read on another site the following:
Quote: Simply take a piece of white Sculpey Brand “Original Scupley”, knead it for a few minutes to soften it up, then firmly place it over the print that you want to remove. Wait a few minutes, then remove the clay.

I stuck some red sculpey to my figures to make them look like zombies, left it for like, a day and now my figures are literally cracking up, like, my tennis player has a whole chunk of the front cracked and breaking
