paint off the back off an acrylic tank?


Recommended Posts

just picked up a tank and the back is painted blue appears rollered on, but unsure what type of paint- ideas on how to get it off without damaging the acrylic? took off a small spot with goof-off and seemed OK, hesitant to use that in large quantities for fear it will fog the acrylic... will not scrape or peel off (at least not easily)

ended up using a product called Mostenbockers Lift Off

water based, biodegradable...

it's a thick gel- brushed it on, covered it with saran wrap so it wouldn't dry out

24 hrs later that paint scraped off like jello without a trace of damage/haze/fog/crazing to the acrylic!
