A couple of weeks back, Scott posted a link to an article about stripping minis that mentioned Dawn Power Dissolver. Ron posted something about using it a while back, too, but the article is what really motivated me to try it out.
I had a lot of trouble finding it locally. Not sure why that is, because it seems like it’s the sort of thing easily available, but… no luck. So, I bought the crap online.
I’ve been using Simple Green, which certainly works, but I’ve never been super thrilled with it.
My test run was these three minis: a metal mini, a plastic mini and a metal mini with crud (which is what Simple Green always gives me).
I let it sit for just a couple of hours. What was shocking was just the act of spraying the minis did some stripping. That white spot on the pauldron was khaki.
Unbelievable. The metal minis look new. There’s a bit of crud on the plastic mini, but more soaking might fix that.
I’m totally sold on this stuff for stripping.
