What do you recommend. I have stripped back a window frame using a heat gun and was intending to use a nitromorse equivalent with wire wool to remove the remnants. We have a wide range of Varnishes that you can use on the stairs and I would recommend the Manns Extra Tough Floor Varnish , which is a durable and protective Varnish that will last really well. The floors upstairs were carpeted and we decided to get the wood floors refinished. What should I use to remove the brushed on paint without taking off the original marking? Paints and varnishes have evolved over the years, so have their formulations and chemical make-up.

A third option is to use an environmentally friendly paint stripper, which takes a little longer to do the job but is safer for you and the environment. In this video Michael starts work on the second box, a carved and painted Saddle lid box. Both of these products are very good at removing stubborn areas of paint or varnish but you should do a test area first of which ever product you decide to try. Once you have washed off as much paint as you can the wood should be allowed to dry and then sanded. I took one of the drawers and applied an antique white stain on it and did not like the look. Great blog, thank you.

Sand the first coat of paint or finish with grit sandpaper after it dries, which could take 8 hours or more. I am so grateful for this information. This will probably be the easiest stripper for you to use but there is also the Paint Panther Paint and Varnish Remover , which works by applying it on to the painted area and within 5 — 10 mins the paint should start to bubble up so that you can scrap it off. The final option is a stripper, such as PeelAway Paint Remover , but again, depending on what is on your frames currently, this could also strip that. Open the door carefully, pull it off the hinges and lay it flat on a pair of sawhorses. I hope this helps and please let me know if you have any further questions. But during the rest of the paint removal process, the upper stairs that had had the stripper on them for about three hours took a third of the time it took to remove the paint from the lower steps.
The Paint Panther Paint and Varnish Remover is a gel designed to make the paint bubble up so it can be scrapped off, I would try this one first as it is a 5 minute treatment. Both solvent-based and caustic based strippers will destroy the rubber, leather, and aluminum parts of a sprayer, but some sprayers can be fitted with neoprene or polyethylene replacements for rubber components and stainless steel replacements for aluminum. Any hints on where to buy the head assembly appreciated. This photo is after the initial sanding. Log in or create an account to post a comment. I have sanded a table right back to the wood.
