Stripping layers of paint from pine and gesso fireplace

Postby asbs999 » Mon Dec 20, 2021 3:44 pm

Hi everyone,

I am about to purchase two pine and gesso reclaimed Georgian fireplaces which have many layers of chipped and cracked paint over fine gesso decoration. How would people recommend removing the paint? - I have seen Peel Away 1 for instance says it is not safe to use on gesso.
