    Default Woodland Scenics "Deep Pour Murky"repair question

    Anybody know how to get paint overspray off a poured river without to much damage?

    I see Woodland Scenics "Deep Pour Murky" for the river but I suppose the repair would be the same for any kind of water product like Realistic Water,Envirotex, Magic Water,etc.

    What kind of paint was oversprayed? I am thinking you need to consider the various methods of paint stripping. If it's basically acrylic, you might get away with just soap and water, using an old toothbrush perhaps to scrape it off. Other paints might require something like Pine Sol or alcohol or mineral spirits or what have you... but then I don't know how any of those might interact with the resin. I would guess, too, that it matters what kind of resin you're talking about, as I bet Enviro-Tex could stand up to quite a broad range of chemicals, where others might not fare as well. Only way to know would be to test, by making a sample and then painting it, and then try to remove.

    My suggestion would be to contact woodland scenics to make sure what you are using to remove the paint overspray does not react with the resin. The should be able to recommend something.

    It is Rustoleum Ultra Cover 2X which is an oil based spray paint. Says to clean up with mineral spirits so I will try tomorrow using some at the river end and see what happens. Wish me luck and thanks Michael.

    I think mineral spirits will damage your pour. Maybe Goo-Gone will work http://googone.com/products/. Whatever you use I would test in a small area.

    I have no no idea why I didn't think of Goo Gone as I use it a lot for many things around the house and in modeling.
    Worked like a charm with no adverse effects on the river in any way.

    Thanks Gary.

    Good to hear it worked out.

    I just came up with another idea to try in case there is future need or someone else has this issue... The orange citrus hand cleaners (like GoJo or Fast Orange) would do minimal damage to the resin and would almost certainly remove the paint. We used this stuff for cleaning paint of our floors when I was in the military (seems like we were always painting something) because it wouldn't scratch up the finish on our waxed (acrylic) tile floors. Well, I should say it would dull it a little but it was easy to buff it out with a clean rag and restore the finish.
