As long as you like. New improved nail varnish remover contains little, if any, acetone according to Mrs NCS. Elven safety and the emviment innit?
What type of paint are you trying to strip. acrylic or enamel?

Might be Halfrauds aerosol stuff. I use that 🙂
Try Nitromors. Read the instructions, wear appropriate PPE>

Mike, try regular household Dettol(the brown stuff) it will remove all the paint and soften old glue too, just leave the minis over night in some pure Dettol, and then scrub lightly(do not use warm water when scrubbing, as you will end up with sticky blobs of paint everywhere) I have done this on 30+ year old models painted numerous times with enamels and they have all come up as shiny as new:

I use dettol as I don’t mind the smell.15/12/2017 at 00:34 #78888jagannathParticipant
I recently found something even better than dettol – this stuff http://www.wilko.com/white-spirit+brush-cleaners/bartoline-clean-spirit-750ml/invt/0315920
Ignore the one star reviews on the site – it’s incredible. Paint, polyurethen varnish, spray primer and gesso all just flake off. It’s totally changed my attitude to shopping for second hand minis, it’s so effective.15/12/2017 at 02:26 #78889Deleted UserMember

Just use the Dettol outside otherwise your significant other will complain “This place smells like a f—ing hospital.”
I speak from experience.

Be careful if you have moggies – they can’t process the chemicals (Phenols) in disinfectants like Dettol. It can kill ’em. (This is NOT a hint on how to deal with a moggy infestation). They need quite a bit for it to be fatal, but drinking water with it in, even inhaling it can be harfmul to them, and leaving open containers of the stuff with figures in isn’t going to be good for them.22/12/2017 at 14:42 #79683PaulParticipant
Wow Guy, thanks for the tip. Luckily when I have done this previously I closed the container and put it in a locked shed.

Just last week I used my lady’s sonic jewelry cleaner and some white spirit, took a couple of hours but did the trick! …then I had to clean it all up…
