    About 20 years ago, my five year old caught a 13 inch bluegill and a friend of mine mounted it for him. He went off to college and my wife packed up his room including packing the mount in sterofoam packing peanuts (no bag). Now the peanuts are stuck to the mount and I fear that scraping them off will remove the paint job. Thoughts or suggestions? OK, I'll even accept suggestions both about the mount and my wife!

    Try water and some ammonia first but I will say no matter what you use your going to have to get a can of clear spray and recoat it.
