try using a small amount of acetone or nail polish remover. it would strip off the paint easily.

about the magic sculpt. i haven't tried it yet. i only use regular epoxy.

well. hope that helps. :)

Acetone can be found at Walmart for $1, It's the best way to remove paint from figures. Try soaking a qtip in it and then wiping off the paint in one direction. Practice on a figure that can be messed up until you get the hang of it.

Never heard of Magic Sculpt

White Spirits or mineral spirits works well too, i soaked a figure in it for a good few hours and it didn't seem to affect the plastic of the figure.

I've never used Magic Sculpt but the testimonials on there website seem to be pretty positive

I used magic Sculpt when I started out. It's very similar to the Aves apoxy sculpt. (not fixit sculpt though, that's different than both.)
