    Paint stripping.

    Hi, I just got some simple green to strip some of my old badly painted miniatures. My question is do I need to dilute it or just use it straight and let the mini's soak for a couple of days?

    Thanks,
    Clidefride.

    I would just use it straight. If it gets to be too expensive and you live in the States near a Dollar Tree, try and get a hold of some LA's Totally Awesome - it has a dumb name but it's pretty similar to Simple Green for paint stripping, and it's only a buck a quart.

    Are they metal or plastic?

    For plastic I hear simple green is great, you just soak them in it undiluted for 1 - 2 hours then scrub the paint off with a toothbrush and it won't damage the plastic, although simple green isn't sold here so I haven't tried this myself. I've also heard of dettol and break fluid being used.

    For metal I just soak them in turpentine overnight and it does the trick.

    Oh, and wear some latex gloves or something, I get terribly itchy hands if I don't and cleaning products get on my skin.

    Simple green is best used straight, it will work fine for both plastic and metal minis. And it is done exactly as you say, follow this link here to see a guide done by one of our members on its usage.
