I want to change face plates for my Puki cat open eye and close eye. However! I tried changing it today and it was hard to get the face off its still unpainted and I did get it off after a bit of pulling. But now I am concerned that once the faces are painted, which will be quite a bit of the face due to being a cat, I will ruin the faceups grabbing the face so much before success. SO question is will it loosen up? any tips or thoughts?
