I recommend first trying to buff it out with a power buffer, but if that doesn't work there is another option. There is a paint cleaner made by the same company that makes "Goo Gone" it is called "Goof Off" (Seriously)(Sold in any major hardware store) It is a paint STRIPPER, so be very careful not to spill any where you do not intend to. What you will want to do is find the softest, cleanest rag you can find, and apply SMALL amounts of "Goof Off" to the rag, and buff the undesired paint out with small circles. Be cautioned tho because too much "Goof Off" and over-zealous buffing WILL take the factory paint right off of your car. In between your factory paint and your "Pole Paint" there are several layers of Clear coat finish applied to your paint job, this is what gives the paint it's glossy finish...you can usually get away with removing a layer or two of the clear coat without too much noticeability, but even then you can mask any small problem areas with buffing wax. I hope this helps you out, I have had three cars spray painted in my driveway by little punks in my neighborhood, (not all of them owned by me) and used "Goof Off" to remove it and it worked fine. Just take your time...patience is the key, and don't use too much or you may be even more upset with the end results.

What worked best for me was a "Mr Clean" sponge and a lot of elbow grease. I successfully removed a very large area (approximately 2 ft x 1 ft) of red paint from my white vehicle using nothing more than the two ingredients listed above. I backed into one of the large red posts seen in front of many Target stores, no dents thankfully, but plenty of red paint was taken home. The "Mr Clean" sponge took it right off, leaving the paint underneath only slightly more dull than the unaffected areas surrounding it. That can easily be remedied with a good wash and wax. Hope this helps...

It would depend on what they are made out of. If they are stone figurines, you can use concrete paint. If they are wood, they would have to be primed with an exterior primer and then painted with exterior paint. (There are many different kinds of exterior paint to choose from.) If they are ceramic, they would have to be primed with a specialty primer like Zinsser's bulls eye 123 and then painted with almost any choice of exterior paint.

Apply a coat of exterior paint over the interior paint to protect the finish and to discourage mildew growth on the paint film.

You can't remove it,but you can paint over it

Dark exterior colors absorb heat and ultraviolet rays which are both very oxidizing elements therefore dark exterior finishes generally chalk up sooner and require more frequent maintenance

Yes, you can use acrylic paint on wooden doors. If there is any peeling paint on the door, you can remove it with sandpaper or a scraper. Also be sure to use exterior acrylic paint if you are painting an exterior door.

If it's latex based, you can try a product called goof-off.

Use a citrus based stripper that will cling to the wall and allow it to work overnight. However, an easier option would be to paint directly over the exterior paint with a good quality interior latex paint.

Exterior paints are devised to use outside, and have different properties than an interior paint. So, no, you shouldn't use an exterior paint indoors.

apply a little drop of gas in the painted coat

An electric paint scraper can help quickly remove exterior paint in order to prepare for the first coat. A pressure washer can also help prepare the house. Sprayers can be used to apply paint quickly and easily.
