POLL DESCRIPTION

As a result of the molding and casting process, miniatures have the potential to have visible seams. The older a mold gets, the more likely seams are to show.

How do you handle seams?

remove all seams

I remove all seams on a model, even if they are in difficult places (such as the face or hair).

remove worst seams

I only remove the largest, most visible seams.

remove most seams

I remove most of the seams on a model, even if they are in hard-to-reach places.

hide with paint

A good paint job can conceal most seam problems.

remove easiest seams

I remove all of the seams which are practical to remove, but don't worry about minor or inaccessible seams.

ignore them

I don't care or worry about seams.

avoid seams

I don't purchase figures if they have noticeable seams.
