Home Depot Americana Chalk paint, does it work as well as Annie Sloan
I am having a hard time finding the Annie Sloan in my area but Home Depot carries their line---and costs much less..input please..thanks.
Thank y'all so much for your inputs, I will try these last one with the fingernail polish remover.
Don’t use muriatic acid that’s only good to remove cement stains get an orbital sander with a little turpentine and hose it off if you can get cloth sandpaper it will work if not regular sand paper will work too just won’t last as long .for spatter it’s good if it’s a lot of paint it will take some doing good luck.
I tried my nail remover and it works...
you need to apply it and scrape it with a scraper
it comes off
just had my exterior painted. for various reasons, I was not micromanaging the painters... However, now that they have gone, and other things have settled down that had me distracted, I have been looking and they literally smeared almost every brick (and glass and other wood) that touches a painted surface!!! Especially in the corners around windows, doorframes. Also, multi drops all around the house.
I am just absolutely sick. I can see using some of the solutions for small areas, but it is literally my entire house of windows, doors. I have no idea what to do or where to begin. my brick is sorta a multicolor so painting is not a viable option. I've heard prof painters say NEVER use muriatic acid unless you are able to saturate the brick in order to rinse.
To make matters more complex, since the drops, smears, and basically freaking sloppy unprofessional work is around legitimately painted surfaces, I don't want to destroy that paint either. And some places I can't even reach. And did I mention time...
I can't believe there is not an easier solution for a seemingly common problem?
