I just got done painting a fish and do not like the outcome and want to repaint it again. What can I use to take the old paint off. Thanks.

WASCO has a paint stripper in a can in their catalog. Or you can use lacquer thinner. Be careful, Good luck
You can get the same thing at the local hardware store. However if you have not applied and clear coats lacquere thinner would be better. However I would do it outside if you can. Be careful with the fins. They can take a beating when stripping.
On repaint jobs I get in I actually mask off the fins and strip the rest of the fish. Sometimes I even just white out the repaint job and paint it as a reproduction. Last fish I did that way saved me a lot of trouble.
