Master the Art of Paint Removal - Undo your miniature's mishaps ✨

Hey there! If you're looking to remove paint from your Warhammer miniature, I've got you covered. Whether you want to start fresh with a new paint job or fix some mistakes, there are a few methods you can try. Let's dive in!

One of the most popular ways to remove paint from miniatures is by using a paint stripper. There are several commercial paint strippers available specifically designed for miniatures. These strippers are usually safe to use on plastic and metal miniatures. Just make sure to follow the instructions carefully and wear protective gloves.

Another method you can try is using isopropyl alcohol (also known as rubbing alcohol). This method works best for acrylic paints. Simply soak your miniature in a container filled with isopropyl alcohol for a few hours or overnight. Afterward, use a toothbrush or a soft-bristle brush to gently scrub away the paint. Remember to rinse the miniature with water afterward to remove any residue.

If you're dealing with a 3D printed miniature, be cautious with the paint removal process. Some paint strippers can damage the surface of the print. Instead, try using a gentle solvent like Simple Green or a similar cleaner. Dilute the solvent with water and soak your miniature for a few hours. Then, use a toothbrush or a soft-bristle brush to remove the paint. Rinse the miniature thoroughly with water afterward.

For stubborn paint or hard-to-reach areas, you can use a toothpick or a toothbrush with softer bristles to gently scrape away the paint. Be careful not to damage the miniature's surface, especially if it's made of plastic.

Now that you know how to remove paint from your Warhammer miniature, let's talk about selling your mini paintings. Selling mini paintings can be a great way to share your talent and make some extra cash. When pricing your mini paintings, consider factors like the time and effort invested, the quality of your work, and the demand for your style. Research similar miniatures on platforms like Etsy to get an idea of the market value.

When it comes to selling, you can start by setting up an online store on platforms like Etsy or eBay. Showcase your mini paintings with high-quality photos and detailed descriptions. Engage with potential buyers through social media and forums dedicated to miniature painting. Building a strong online presence and connecting with the community can help you gain exposure and attract customers.

Remember, practice makes perfect! Keep experimenting with different techniques and styles, and don't be afraid to take risks. Happy painting and selling!
