stripping resin moldings
WeÂre trying to strip many years of paint off of some wall moldings to reveal the floral details before repainting. We had assumed the moldings were plaster, but after stripping a test patch with Soy Gel, they actually appear to be some sort of resin molds applied to wood strips. The problem is that the second application of Soy Gel began to dissolve the resin details. Does anyone have any experience or suggestions for stripping the paint without destroying the resin? WeÂve been using Citristrip on our window moldings, but weÂre concerned that the neutralization process might be too harsh. WeÂll probably give Peel-Away a shot, but any other ideas?
