Default Re: Removing paint off a base?

any solvent would be fine probably, glass is pretty impervious, only things like very very strong acids will do much to them. for an at home fix probably acetone or denatured alcohol would be some of the best bets. if you had access to more special equipment there are other ways like burning it off by re annealing the piece (slowly bringing it up to the 890-9608F range depending on the glass then holding it for 2 hours at that temp, then down to 650*f after 6 hours from the start of the program then to 90-200 ish after 12 hours of total program time). or sanding/buffing it off but you need wet sanders and cerium to polish
