removing gloss paint from vinyl?

Hmm. Any suggestions?

I have an LP with a 10mm blob of white gloss paint firmly bonded to track three :-(

Can't you fingernail it off? I'd guess most things which will thin the paint will also thin the vinyl.

Thinking laterally:

Splatter more paint on it, create a Squire-esque art work, frame it and flog it for £50 and buy a new copy out of the profit?

What is the record?

Won't fingernail - it's well and truly stuck :-(

It's this.



Great record! I think it came out of a bargain bin years ago (because of the paint splash...) - I guess I'll either have to invest in a new copy or just stick to side b!

for example

Judging by the cover it could be one of Fox's.

Paul, have you tried a sewing needle on it? You might be able to lever it off or poke it to death.
I haven't listened to that in ages.

Hi,

Soak it in white sprit to soften the paint, check that it dosn't do any thing to the record first!

White spirit won't touch vinyl. It may strip out some of the plasticisers, but that shouldn't effect SQ.

Avoid acetone or any of the cyclic solvents, though.

If you have an already knackerd disc, try doing a trial with xylene. It will be borderline, but it shouldn't effect vinyl, but it will definitely soften alkyds or emulsions.

Yes try white spirit on an old shagged record first.

could you epoxy or superglue an anchor point to the paint and then lever it off? A small bolt-head, flat glued on, could be grabbed by pliers on the threads of the bolt. Lever sideways so it yields.

Then we get a thread about removing epoxy from records

In the case of aged alkyds, their adhesive strength to the vinyl is likely to be greater than their internal cohesive strength.
This beinn the case, the paint spot would fail cohesively, leaving paint on the bolt head, but also still on the vinyl.

If all else fails, it's been reissued. Nice weighty flat and quiet vinyl with extras on a second disc. Not quite the same I realise, but it's a corker.
