What is the best way to get black and blue spray paint off.

I have an antique trunk that is in their garage. My 5 yr old grand daughter found 2 partial cans of blue and black spray paint and sprayed a couple of blotches (1 of each color) on my antique trunk. How do I remove the paint without ruining my trunk?

    Chemical paint stripper will remove it. Try the orange-oil kind first. They are less toxic. Chemical strippers are toxic, and you should use gloves if you go that route.

    Try a product like Goof-off first. Stripper of any kind is going to remove remove your finish. Use some steel wool - should be in your paint section along with your Goof-off, and you may be able to get it off without damaging the finish underneath.

    Take cans to hardware store so they know what type it is and ask them.
