Re: Stripping Figures

This is just my two cents but having been stripping minis recently on buying a lot of painted lead minis I am using Simple Green.

If you are not in a rush and want to avoid all those corrosive smelly dangerous strippers, then I recommend SG. I usually have the minis bath in it for a week or more and then take out the minis, out them into a metal dish and pour boiling hot water on them to soak for about 30 mins. Then scrub them using detergent and an old tooth brush. After that give them a going over with a wire brush which I use as an attachment on my hobby drill.
That helps to remove any stubborn paint and gives them a good polish at the same time.

It has been interesting hearing other peoples suggestions and there are some new products for me to try in the future.

I even clean my airbrush by bathing it in the SG for a week or so. It doesn't seem to damage the rubber seals or anything, and it comes up shinny and new and clean.
