Removing paint 'overlap' from varnished wood and stone

Postby bundy » Fri Jun 01, 2007 2:12 pm

Following an enthusiastic decorating session, some of the matt emulsion used on the walls has 'overlapped' onto surrounding varnished woodwork, and onto an untreated stone fireplace.

Any recommendtions / suggestions for removing this without stripping the varnish or staining the stone?

See our paint stripping project which (liquid stripper) will remove the paint safely from the stone but for the varnished wood we suggest rubbing with warm water and a cloth. If its only emulsion it should come off without damageing the varnish. If not you will have to use the stripper and revarnish.

That's great, thank you. We'll give the paint stripper a go on the stone.
