Hi I placed a lode of old metal minis in a tub of dot3 on Saturday morning and had a go at getting the paint off them this afternoon with out much luck. One or two seem to have lost the paint OK the enamels come off some old Grenadier models and one or two citadels which were mainly citadel black or white have stripped ok but most of them are firmly refusing to come clean. I’m going to leave them in a few days longer but are their any other ideas could it be that I have put too many minis in too little brake fluid?
Striping ? I assume you mean stripping ? My way is to drop them into a tin of paint thinners, leave them sit a while & scrub with a toothbrush before the damn thing disintegrates. If I recall, there are many threads on stripping here if you search.
Personally I wouldn't use brake fluid because of the residue but some people do.
Since I use it and have understood what happened...
The paint which refuses to leave your model is the paint that is in the crevices of the model. Use a toothpick and then an old toothbrush and lots of running water!
Be sure to wear gloves when handling break fluids! Also be sure the room where you open the container with the brake fluids is well ventilated!
Thanks to all the people showing faith in me
I sometimes feel that everyone will leave me and they will be on their own...
