How do you dissolve paint?
With paint thinner unless the paint has dried and then you may need a chemical paint remover.
No. Latex paint will not dissolve in mineral spirits.
It depends what paint. Watercolours will easily dissolve (hence their name), but things like acrylic paint won't.
yes because latex paint is latex paint
Yes, white spirit dissolve paints.
Acetone is a chemical which will dissolve Styrofoam. Certain types of spray paint, as well as gasoline, will also dissolve Styrofoam.
It will remove some types of paint. Note that some types of paint dissolve in water - gasolene won't help for those. Other paints are oil-based - they dissolve in organic compounds such as gasolene.
Denatured alcohol or anything stronger will dissolve latex paint.
A nonpolar solvent can dissolve another nonpolar substance.
Apply paint remover to paint. Allow paint to dissolve into paint remover. Wipe off resulting mixture of paint and paint remover.
Because paint thinner is also oil based and water is not.
paint thinner or nail polish will do it
I think , it doesn't
The paint from paintballs will wash out of clothing; however, the paintballs will dissolve when soaked in water.
Depends on the kind of paint: oil based paint will dissolve in, or at least mix with kerosine, water based will not (e.g. alkyds)
paint dissolves faster in benzene but table salt does not
There is no water based solvent to dissolve oil based paint.
Yes, but you will need a lacquer-free paint - otherwise it will dissolve. Rust-o-leum makes a plastic safe paint and model airplane paint is also safe to use.
no oil and water dont mix.
Both kerosene and paint are non-polar, so they have compatible intermolecular forces and there's a better change they'll dissolve each other better than water will (because water is polar.)
Oil and water do not mix, gloss paints are oil based paints therefore water does not dilute (dissolve) them.
Your house could flood and it would desolve
It diffuses, and probably partly dissolves.
An example of a solute is sugar. Sugar can readily dissolve in water. However, sugar cannot dissolve in oil, gasoline, or paint thinner.
ANSWER: Yes. Everything dissolves in water. If the water is purified, it will dissolve almost anything. Water, in its purest form will dissolve rocks and minerals. peace up yo roxxon
I'm sorry, but you don't. I use spray paint to stencil images on clothing. The usual chemical to dissolve spray paint is xylene...there might be others like MEK, but all of it is poisonous. Spraypaint included. If you attempt to use a chemical like this on synthetic material, it could dissolve the fabric. If you are broke, or creative, you could try to match the color, and spray paint over the spray paint.
Paintballs will dissolve in water and biodegrade overtime. Splatters will last a long time, unless washed or wiped.
The magnetically attractive particles cannot actually dissolve in the paint but rather are simply mixed into the paint and are held in suspension in the paint. These microscopic particles will render a fine texture to the wall when dry which is unavoidable with any magnetic paint.
Any petroleum distillate (gasoline, paint thinner) will dissolve polystyrene.
yes, paint balls will swell and then dissolve in water in about three days. except for rap4 GOLF balls, which decompose under sunlight.
Because it is latex based. -That means water is it's thinner.
As long as the paint is wet it will simply wash out with shampoo but once the paint dries...I use WD40. Just shake the can, spray a little on the hair, and rub. Most of the paint will dissolve and the rest should come out in the wash.
Alcohol does not dissolve the paint, where as acetone does.
Because it's composed of microscopic particles of non-soluable solids. Although the paint is 'wet' when applied, the water evaporates, leaving the pigment behind.
Because water is polar (as is salt) whereas paint-thinner is not polar. Consider the rule "like dissolves like". non-polar covalent solvents (paint thinner) will not dissolve polar solutes (salt)
I wouldn't recommend it. Some of the chemicals in the alkyd will dissolve the latex and the alkyd won't "stick". It's best to remove the latex using laquer thinner or xylene first.
rust can dissolve the metal on ur car then ur car can fall apart and it will wreck your paint
Wet it and wipe it. Practically all of saliva will dissolve in water or soapy water.
Try it on a small, hidden area, but it should be fine. Nail polish is a kind of paint called nitrocellulose lacquer; if the solvent (acetone) won't dissolve the plastic, go for it.
Scrape off as must excess paint as you can with a Kitchen knife, or a similar tool. Make a solution of soapy water, using a cup of warm water, add a squirt of washing up liquid, making sure it does not contain bleach. Using a cloth or sponge - dip it in the solution and dab the stain. Working from the outside in. If the paint does not start to dissolve in the soapy water… Read More
the beeswax by itself might polish, but i think the thinner will dissolve the wax.
gasoline works great but any sort of oil bested paint thinner or kerosene will work\
You can scrape or sand the paint off, but that may scratch the aluminun finish. Your best bet is to use a commercial graffiti remover such as Goof-off or So-Safe. These products dissolve the paint so you can just wipe it off. Good luck.
An organic solvent should dissolve the latex. Problem is that it may destroy the hat in the process. Acetone is very "strong" and also dissolves some synthetic fabrics. Pure Petrol could possibly be a solution. It really mostly depends on the material the hat is made from. What can you apply to dissolve "latex plastic" and not dissolve the fabrics in the hat. Pure water and soap would not work, as latex is water resistant… Read More
No. Most paint thinner will not dissolve epoxy at all. However, many epoxies reach a stage where they can be peeled off just before they finally harden. Look for this happening and try to peel it.
I'll know after I try it!! Might be cheaper to purchase a new bottle of rubber cement!
Chances are you wont be able to reuse the poster paint. However, you could try crushing it thoroughly and then add a couple of drops of water and stir. If you try to dissolve the paint with thinner or stripper it will probably loose its integrity.
Enamel in the spray can will not dissolve an existing coat of the same paint. There is something else going on there. Double check the can(s) to be sure you are using the same product. It sound like you applied something other than enamel to the existing surface.
It works if you put vinegar and water then get a vacum and it will suck it all up i spilled brown paint on my white carpet and it got it right up try it Depending on the size of the paint spot, you can cut it out if it is only a small area and it is on top of the carpet. Vinegar and water has been known to help with Latex paint. Avoid… Read More
Safflower oil is used to dilute oil paint and is the base for many oil paints, but is not a solvent. A solvent dissolves the paint completely. Adding more oil to oil paint will only thin the color out into the solution. To dissolve oil paint use a odorless thinner available through art supply stores or turpentine (preferably odorless, a lot of people have a bad reaction to turpentine). Safflower oil will work if you… Read More
Try rubbing it with denatured alcohol. It will soften or dissolve latex, but won't affect oil.
