    if you started a project and it went bad, can you clean off terraslate? Bad thing it’s dried a few days. I know I should of done it day of, but it was late and honestly didn’t know what to use to clean it

    I want to conserve what I have of the samples. Also, has anyone ordered samples more than once?

    Thanks all

    being water proof the answer is yes, Hot soapy water soak and the paint should come right off unless you used urethane.

    Don't try to clean it with alcohol. When I got some last year, I tried to clean it before painting to remove any finger print oil with alcohol and it took the coating that is over the plastic off. Use windex w/o ammonia and you'll do good for that. Windex might work to remove dried paint. I don't know but I think I'll try it on a painting I didn't like.

    I just tried taking the paint off of terraslate and used Dawn dish liquid. Came off great. Then I used Windex w/o ammonia to finish cleaning it.
    One thing about the paper is you can paint on both sides. If you don't like the front side, turn it over and paint the other side. Then if you don't like either, soap and water works great.

    I used a few sheets of my free samples and liked it so much that I bought more of the 7mil. I will never use Yupo again. Well, I have one sheet left, ha.
