Bare metal foil adhesive

Recommended Posts

I painted a model with  Rustoleum 2xx paint. I then used Bare metal foil. Pulling it off has left a lot of adhesive on the paint & I'm not sure what to use on this paint without ruining it to get it off.

I just use painters tape. The adhesive on the tape will stick to the residue and slowly remove it by reapplying the tape and removing until all the residue is gone.


I used the same technique when removing the price stickers from CD covers and gifts.

Rubbing alcohol will remove BMF residue quite handily, but can also remove some types of paint. Test first. 

Next time I have the problem, I'm gonna try Sandboarder's tape trick first.
