I need help from some experienced strippers. I had undercoated a mini with ace spray paint (which is crap. A warning to all... avoid evil ACe spray paint >_<) Anyway, it was chipping on the flat surfaces so I got gatvol (fed-up) with this idea and decided to strip the mini. After 2 days of soaking,scrubbing and poking this model it would appear that the only place the paint decided to stick was in the nooks and crannies. I've been using Simple green.
Do you think, since this hard to get to paint is being so resilient, I could rinse the stripping agent off and paint over it without it suddenly deciding half way throught the project that now it wants off?
I could also stick it in the dishwasher (it wouldn't be the first time :p)
opinions would be greatly appreciated.
Plastic or metal mini? I find the best tool to use is an electric toothbrush with hard bristles. If it's a metal mini you can use substances that are a little more caustic such as nail polish remover, white spirits or even brake fluid (my personal favortie for metal minis.) If it's plastic then you have to be a little more gentle...I'd stick with the Simple Green or another general cleaner like Easy-Off Bam! If you use anything that's too strong it'll soften up the plastic and warp or even melt it slightly & you'll end up with a mini that has lost some of it's detail (not a good thing.)
