Disassembling busts

I hope I'm writing in the right subforum.

A question to the veteran customizers: does anyone know whether the Egyptian bust can be disassembled?



If so, can the head be fitted on a klicky – is it a regular head?

tahra:
It's a regular head, yes...

I believe brute force was used, and most got the base damaged, but.. it's been a while.. I do have some more to pop too, so, I hope someone has an easy method ;)

PMatt:
That's great news!

That bust seems to be the least expensive source of golden heads available, though it's not cheap per se.

As for the disassembly process, I was thinking of going the standard way with pincers. With normal klickies it works wonders, I'll see if that's the case for busts too as soon as I acquire some.

I believe my problem with that is that there is nothing to hold on to - no body.... :(

Hadoque:
Rubber-band method.
Just take a thick, elastic rubber band and wrap it as many times as you can very tightly around the neck, and turn the head towards the back of the "torso" and donīt be afraid to cross itīs intended maximum sustained turn-radius (this starts sounding like aircraft-manoeuvring talk  ;D).  If the head then does not pop out from itself, then carefully but with enough force turn the head around 360 ° one or more times, then the head should finally come out without leaving any (or just very minor) damage.
