stripping paint

Post  Kuyp on Wed Feb 26, 2014 9:21 am

Hey guys just wondering how to go about stripping paint off minis without destroying them.

I have a metal fig that I want to paint up butI want to start new instead of the layers of caked on paint that I put on there foreverago.

Any tips ?

I think it's Pine Sol but I'm not sure. Whatever it is, you put the mini in it overnight or for a couple of days and then scrub it clean. works wonders.

Yeah, Simple Green is pretty awesome, and a jug of the stuff will last you a long time. You might have to help some more stubborn paints with a toothbrush every so often.

Simple green is the way to go since it doesn't melt plastics. Lots of options that are easier for metals, but they usually ruin metals (and are tougher to dispose of properly).

If it's just a metal miniature as you mentioned, rubbing alcohol does the trick and you might have around already.
