I got this lovely Snow Leopard from Colorata at a flee market, unfortunately it is full of pink drawings. Any idea what I could clean it with?

Uhhh! Poor, beautyful kitty ! Shocked

I am afraid that if it is permanent marker, there is nothing to do except perhaps repainting Sad

With brake fluid, two or three drops every hour.

And lots of patience.

Sometimes just a regular eraser works! I have often used it to remove smaller blemishes on Breyer horse models, it might work on this as well, depending on the plastic.
