Stripping Paint - Simple Green?

Postby FatherRob » Mon Jun 02, 2014 1:06 pm

Well, I got my latest weefit base coat done nicely... and then, when I started airbrusing my details, things went seriously amuck. Dingbat me then thought I could solve the problem by trying to reestablish the base coat over the screw up, and things went downhill from there.

Suffice it to say, she needs a new paint job now, from the keep up.

I have read that Simple Green is great for projects such as this. Put it in a ziploc for a few days, pull it out, and toothbrush it clean. Anyone have experience with it?

I'd rather avoid Easy Off with Lye (and the non-lye version doesn't work worth a darned) as I have three little ones who get curious...

Concentrat4ed Simple Green will take model paint off in 24 hours. I've even used it on ancient house paint. A dozen layers took longer.

Will Simple Green remove putty?
