Tips on removing paint transfers from painted areasTips on removing paint transfers from painted areasAsk MFC

Hey everyone, I recently purchased Lancer Tamamo at C ranked quality off of AmiAmi. All things considered, I'm not let down for the price. She is in largely good condition, but she does have multiple paint transfers around... her hair, of all places.
There are obvious tips with paint transfer removal, the magic eraser being a go-to tool and something that's helped me before. I did already go this route on a transfer on the back of her head where I wouldn't care, and despite trying to focus on the transfer itself as much as I could, the results are something I obviously can't take to the transfers closer to her face, and my view.

My first efforts will be to try to give her head a nice warm water and dish soap soak and bath, but after that I'm pretty clueless on where to go. The magic eraser is too harsh, and similarly so I'm not sure I can apply isopropyl alcohol exclusively to the spots of the remaining transfers. Are there any tips anyone can recommend, or is this one I have to give up on?

+1 latex free white eraser

I have one with me every time I open a figure (along with a makeup brush and rocket blaster to clear the eraser debris). It's the lightest cleaning method and can be effective depending on the paint defect. It can still take a little paint off or make an area shiny, so use caution like with any other cleaning method.

Magic eraser is too strong for painted areas, I included an example image. It sands away paint.

I will say it is so tiny don’t bother with it. You may cause more problems .

darkinsanity132 mese/i fa#80469077I had a similar issue a couple months back, of a paint transfer getting on the figure's eye. Luckily it was just on the sclera (the white part), so I wasn't overly worried about completely ruining the eye, but I was still hesitant to use a magic eraser on a potentially delicate place. Someone suggested using a latex-free pencil eraser, and that actually worked like a charm! I can still kinda see the mark or something if I squint at the figure, and the spot is a little more shiny compared to the rest of the figure, but in photos or when looking at it at the distance that I'm usually observing the figure, I can't even tell there was a mark in the first place.

Auri2 mese/i fa#80469079Standard latex free eraser should've been the first thing to try. Magic erasers are fine sandpaper. Try any white eraser you might have already, shouldn't make the stains worse. If not go for the soap route, if neither works there aren't any less invasive solutions. You would need a solvent or repainting the areas.
I will give this a try, thank you. Unfortunately I'm not too well versed in methods and I went it a little headstrong before asking, I've heard of erasers helping before but it completely slipped my mind. The damage I did cause is at least completely out of sight.
