Hey,
I recently did a paintjob on my Proto switch EL mask, but now, with winter coming, I want to change my design and colour. For those of you that don't know about my paintjobs, link here .
I was wondering if using turpentine to remove the paint on my mask would damage plastic. If so, what other option would I have to remove the paint?
Thanks,
~Spartan 043

Go to Home Depot and get a can of JASCO Paint Remover, its Non-Flammable, No-Toxic, can be washed off wit plain water and its Environmentaly Safe.

You can either use a Paint Brush or a Rag and apply the JASCO on the Marker's Body, you'll know right away that the Paint Remover is working once it comes into contact wit the Paint.

Ok forget the JASCO, it will ruin the Plastic (I missed the Fine Print on the can I have)....I guess regular Paint Thinner is your only choice in removing the Paint off your Mask.

try nailpolish remover. its usualy safe for plastics and i would suggest a wire brush

nexttime i would suggest putting masking tape down on your mask then painting over that. then you can interchange it out as needed by just removing the tape

edit: the wire brush will leave scrach marks over your mask though it will also have a better holding surface if you repaint

if you dont want the scrach marks you can try a pot scrubber, should have one around or under your sink

I am also a model builder, and here's how to remove paint form plastic:

To remove paint from plastic, get a can of oven cleaner.
Put the item you want to remove the paint form in a container big enough, and cover it with the oven cleaner.
That should work.
