Re: Removing Gloss Paint from clothing

You don't.


The only think I can think of is to warm it (perhaps over the steam from your kettle) and then apply toluene or white spirit. It may damage the clothes though.

Re: Removing Gloss Paint from clothing

Very carefully Not easy to get that off once it dries, you could try white spirits on a cloth, dab it on gently though.

Re: Removing Gloss Paint from clothing

How about a steamer?

They can send a fine spray of hot steam that may well soften & remove it?

Re: Removing Gloss Paint from clothing

Yep!As an art teacher the rules are if it's oil based and dry you are screwed.Therefore clean it STRAIGHT AWAY before it dries with white spirit and you may get away with it..but not if it's silk(if you are painting in silk clothes either decorating/painting is very well paid or you should be doing your real job and paying someone else to paint).

The other paint not to allow to dry is acrylic based.It may be possible to soak this off,IF the paint has remained on the surface of the fabric as a blob.If it has been wiped off and therefore pushed into the fabric's fibres it won't come out very easily at all.After soaking it should go soft and if it is in blob form you can CAREFULLY pick it off(the same goes for PVA glue).So with acrylic don't wipe just soak RIGHT AWAY.

Swarfega will do it, it breaks up the oil in the paint then you can wash the paint out.

Even when it is set hard?If that's the case then I think you have found a brand new paint stripper.
