Peel Away stripper on pitted, glazed tile

Posted by Jane on October 5th, 1999 12:03 PM

My fireplace surround and mantle are made of green glazed tile -- lots of pitting and detail in the design. A previous owner painted it white. Over the years I've used a variety of strippers attempting to clean it. The result is a fairly clean surface with paint-filled pits and groves.

I tried peel away on a small area and now have softened paint in pits and groves. The after 20+ hours the product's consistency showed little change and no "peel away" action whatsoever.

Any suggestions? More time? A backing other than that provided with the product? (At one point the paper peeled into two finer layers with one still stuck in the product.)

I really don't want to pick all the paint -- hard or softened -- out of every little crevice with a needle. Wet brushing it out is a possible but incredibly messy solution that manages to smear white all over the place and fling drops of diluted paint all over the room. I really had hopes hung on this Peel Away product. Advice! Help!! Please!!! Jane
