    Does anyone know a good way to remove enamel/ acrylic paint off resin kits?
    I'm looking for a way that doesn't effect the resin it self.

    Thanks!

    Dip and leave the model in Pinesoil (home cleaning product) and use a plastic bucket...The pinesoil will soften the paint after a whole day of being soaked in it.. It worked for my Vinyl models before.without hurting it. Hope this helps?

    Castrol Super Clean. Put the item in a bucket, pour in enough SC to cover the item, let sit over night, and in the morning, just scrub it with a stiff-bristled toothbrush. Paint will flake right off.
