An accidental splatter of paint can instantly ruin the look you had in mind for your glass. Even with the best preparation beforehand, I can still guarantee you every sprayer has been there.
What you really need to concern yourself with however, is how you are going to get the paint off the glass when you’re beyond the point of covering up the splatter. Glass paint removal is much easier than you might initially anticipate and there is a method available to ensure that stubborn paint comes off to give you a revived piece of glass, but be aware this is a messy process.
So, without much further ado, let’s get started!
You will require
Firstly, pour your gun cleaner into the trigger spray bottle and start to apply heavily to small sections of the glass. Once you have done this, leave the solution for 20-30 seconds to antagonize the paint.
Now here is the step where you must be extra careful. You can use a single razor blade and position it at approximately 45 degrees from the glass panel. Any mishap with the angle and you are likely to scratch your glass so make sure the paint has softened before proceeding. Do not be overly aggressive, take your time!
Push the blade slowly against the paint and peel away, one stroke after another. Keep the motion of moving the blade consistent. Make sure to keep applying the gun cleaner and even soak a cloth with your liquid mixture if you find this helps.
Once you have removed the bulk of the paint, use our glass cleaner to buff the glass. Pour the liquid heavily onto the glass and use your blue tissue roll to buffer back to its original condition. Use a clean blade for any leftover areas.
The Bottom Line
By following the above steps thoroughly, you will be able to remove any paint from your glass & also save yourself the additional cost of replacing it in the process. For top-quality products related to glass paints, you can visit the Creative Resins catalog now and choose some of the best paint for glass available on the market today at unparalleled prices.
