View Full Version : Tips for removing stencil paint from frame

03-28-2004, 12:56 PM
Let's just say I was a bit over the top in applying the stencil ink. When I later took my Prince TT Warrior (nice white paint job) out of my bag, quite a bit of the red ink had migrated to the frame, which now have pink streaks all over.

Simple household cleaner does not do much.

Can I get it off without affecting the paint job underneath?

All u have to do is use a nail polish remover.

Yep, nail polish remover should do the trick, I hope you're female friend has some, it could be a bit embarassing going to the shops to buy some!

I use a product called "Goof Off" available at most home improvement retailers. Plus no embarassing nail polish remover purchases to face!

BE CAREFUL WITH NAIL POLISH REMOVER!! They are not all the same and some will cheerfully remove the paint along with the stencil ink. I have had good success with simple rubbing alcohol -- the same stuff I clean my clamps with.
