    Howdy, I'm new here, I've been a collector for quite a while now. I recently acquired an extremely cool chicken mount. It was almost free due to the fact that it had gotten some paint splatter on it. The woman was painting her home and didn't bother to cover anything one it was moved away from the wall. This bird is in great condition besides a handful of white paint splatters across its black feathers. Do any of you have a suggestion for getting the paint off without damaging the feathers?

    Thanks,
    Ed
     
  2. Try using laquer thinner or acetone to get it off. :)

    Dampen a cotton ball and wipe it across the feathers. Use what Cheri said
