Would anyone be interested in taking advantage of a paint stripping service if one were available? I'm thinking of setting one up as i have now managed to get good results with epic and 40k minis...

My current idea is to charge a small fee per mini or stand of epic.  anyone interested?

For metal miniatures I use a cleaner called Lestoil.  If the miniature was painted with oil based paint the Lestoil will strip it, with zero scrubbing, down to bare metal.  In some cases I have had the miniature come out looking like it had just come out of the package.  If the miniature was painted with water based paint then it will loosen up and come off with a little bit of scrubbing with a toothebrush.  Lestoil also has about a 75% effective rate at getting under super-glue allowing you to very easily pick it off with fingernails.  After soaking in the Lestoil simply drain off the excess Lestoil and run under water, lightly scrubbing with a firm bristled toothebrush as needed.  Do not use Lestoil on plastic miniatures, it will either turn them to goo (like the black bases) or turn the outer 1mm to mush (sprued Epic miniatures)  

If you get a paint or a primer that does not come off with Lestoil you need to soak it in Acetone, which you can get in the paint section of many hardware stores; I get mine at Lowes or Home Depot.

For plastic minatures I have switched to Super Clean from Simple Green.  Super Clean is moderatly better than Simple Green with water based paints and exceptionally better with oil based paints.

The title of this topic is grossly misleading! I was expecting something quite different than brake fluid.

But seriously folks, I alternate simple green and brake fluid (don't mix!). Both are environmentally safe; brake fluid is used in laxatives and Dr. Pepper, for example.

I was thinking the same thing! ?

But this is interesting too. :p

I thought so too...

I thought maybe Kitty had come back L4!???!!!!   :p   :cool:

:confuse:

Just a note, Brake Fluid is *not* environmentally friendly!

At least the one I buy has a note on the bottle telling me to take it to an authorised site (Pretty much any garage or petrol station) for disposal.

Chuck it down the drain and you're definitely harming the environment.

During my experiments with sampling patterns using sculpey, I discovered that the sculpey will lift old paint during baking.

It helps get that hard-to-reach stuff in the cracks that normal stripping and scrubbing doesn't reach.

Ugh. More research ahead.

How does oven cleaner tend to react with 6mm Plastic Hormagaunts - is this a bad idea?

I've just had good results with some plastic minis that were soaked in Mr. Muscle Orange Action. ?Some of the best results of any paint stripper I've used, and I've used a lot. ?The only problem is that it looks like a soak of a day or two might be necessary - a couple of hours doesn't cut it.

EDIT: I might have spoke too soon.  It seems to have trouble with primer, and the paint still sticks like a limpet in any kind of recess.  Though that might be helped by a stiffer brush.

What have people used to strip resin minis?  I have a Custodian I need to strip and I use Pine Sol, but am not sure what to use on Resin.

Simple Green has worked for a lot of Forge World stuff. There have been a few exceptions, but in general, it's your best bet. The nice thing is that if it doesn't work, the mini is unharmed for future experiments.

It worked though I had to put it in a coule times as it took the first layer off no problem, but the primer was trouble.

Breten: Did the Pine Sol work on the resin? I have 2 Hell Talons that could do with a repaint but don't know if this Pine Sol is available in the UK

Thanks.
