TOPIC: Removing paint from dwarvenite

Re:Removing paint from dwarvenite 8 Months, 3 Weeks ago  
So, I just wanted to post a quick update here.

I had a single tile that I put WAY too much olive drybrush upon, and you could, even at a distance, tell that it was "too much."

I soaked the piece in a simple green bath for about 3 hours.

I was absolutely astonished at the result:

Simple green FULLY removes Pokorny paint. I dont mean there is a fleck here, and a dab is gone, I mean it DISENTEGRATES it. There was NO color besides the Dwarvenite coloring.

It also does not damage the tile at ALL. No loss of detail, nothing.

It just...works.

What was interesting to me is that it worked as well as it did, only after 3 hours, instead of a 24 hour long bath. In fairness, the paint was only 2 weeks old, but I wanted to just get the message out:

Simple Green to remove paint off Dwarvenite works like a CHARM.

Just to see if I could get the acrylic paint off, I tried to wash off one tile I painted. All it took was some warm soapy water and the paint came off easily. No need to soak for hours in simple green, just warm soapy dish water works as well.

So unless you enjoy extra excuses to repaint, it may be wise to get a good sealing layer on the top if anyone in your group may spill anything on them. It would also be wise if you plan to use any effects like dry ice or a fog machine to insure the vapor does not do a number on your paint.

On the bright side, it sounds like even after some decent curing time you can probably change your mind about a dwarvenite paint job and redo it as you like.

My players rue the day I bought "Dragon Mountain". Ever since they give every creature a bit more respect. You never know when the GM will decide that this group is crafty...

Sounds like this is because of the cheap paints used. Try the ones listed here...
