How to remove artist acrylic paint from painted outside wall

Answered
I gave my granddaughter some paint to paint a rainbow on my outside wall, just for fun thinking that it would easily wash off being kids craft paint. As it happens, it was better quality than I thought and now will not wash off. Does anyone have any ideas?

    Rubbing alcohol or cleaning alcohol. Breaks down oil based paints.

    Not oil based. You could try sanding off. Do it with an electric sander.

    Put a frame around it and take a photo of the 👩🏻‍🎨 “artist” standing/sitting next to her creation. If you still decide to remove it you’ll have a photo to recall the event.

    Alcohol will work to remove acrylic paint. It may take some time, depending on texture of wall, thickness of paint, etc. Wet it down, let sit just a few minutes, rub off with an alcohol moistened rag. You may have to repeat several times. Or use a remover from the hardware store, like Oops!
