I just went through an old box i found around my studio and i found a few good glass bottles (paasche vl ab bottles) with some dried up createx paint inside them. A few i was able to scrape them out with a plastic knife. But i have a few that seem to be stuck.

I can just soak the bottles, caps off, over night in a bucket with windex. But does any one else had this happen and found a faster way of removing the dried up paint?

Use some denatured alcohol and let it sit for a couple of hours.

Windex will not work if the paint has sat for years, you can also use acetone.

Createx airbrush restorer work great for this too. Like the denatured alcohol, let it soak for a few hours.

Restorer may soften the paint but sometimes does not always work on old dry paint..(even soaking it for a few days) That is why I suggested the denatured alcohol or acetone.

Denatured alcohol worked great. I was able to save every singe bottle. I worked them outside of the house. that stuff was very strong.
