Some part cleanup will be necessary.  During the 3D printing process, a waxy substance is used to support certain part features.  Although the parts are cleaned by Shapeways afterwards, some waxy residue may remain.  It can be safely removed with water and a mild water-based detergent like “Dawn” dishwashing detergent, baby shampoo (no conditioner) or "Simple Green" using an old, soft toothbrush, Q-tips or pipe cleaners.  Acetone can melt the plastic.  Acetate (found in acetone-free fingernail polish remover) and methyl ethyl ketone ("MEK", sometimes used as a paint thinner) will leave a crystalline powder on the surface.

During the printing process, liquid resin is cured by ultraviolet light.  Microscopic bits of resin may remain uncured.  Let your parts sit in direct sunlight for a few hours to fully cure the resin before painting.

Once your parts are fully cured, if desired, careful use of an inexpensive “air eraser” emitting common household baking soda can help smooth surfaces and remove any unwanted “frost”.  Similar to an airbrush but much cheaper, air erasers can be found on Amazon.com.  Models by Harbor Freight and Paasche are popular.

Water-based acrylic paints meant for plastics is strongly recommended.  Other paints, especially enamels, may not cure on Frosted Detail 3D-printed plastics.
