Circa 1850 Furniture Stripper

Circa 1850 Furniture Stripper removes old paint, varnish, shellac, lacquer and urethane - even multiple coats with simple brushing. Because it contains no water or harsh chemicals it is safe to use on fine furniture. It will not disturb the wood's natural patina or raise the grain, and it will not harm glue joints or veneers. Circa 1850 Furniture Stripper is non-flammable and almost odorless. Furniture stripper has a goopy syrup consistency that cuts through paint film. For gel formula that clings best to vertical or exterior surfaces, try Circa 1850 Heavy Body Paint & Varnish Remover. Furniture Stripper does not require any afterwash or neutralizing. Made by Swing Paints.

Wear protective gloves and work in a well ventilated area. Place the object to be stripped on a plastic sheet. Pour some stripper into a small foil, metal or glass container. Brush a liberal amount of stripper over one or two square feet of surface. Wait a few minutes for the finish to dissolve. Remove the dissolved finish using a brush or Circa 1850 Maple Scraper. Remove any residue with the medium (0) steel wool dipped in stripper. When dry, object is ready for finishing. For exterior use or vertical surfaces use Circa 1850 Heavy Body Paint & Varnish Remover.

Best thing I've ever used on antiques I care about

5

This is the best thing I've ever used on fine wood. I've used this for 15 year and won't use anything else unless I can't get Circa 1850. I especially like it toward the end of stripping when I need to get the surface really clean. I can use a cheap natural fiber paint brush and wash and scrub. It's more like cleaning than stripping at that point, though it works great for stripping heavy paint too. While it's a very effective stripper, it doesn't dry out the wood and it's relatively gentle on me. If I get a drop on my hand it stings, but doesn't burn like others. It's not a "fumy" as others, so I feel OK using it indoors with really good ventilation, which I have to do occasionally on woodwork refinishing. Still, all the normal precautions with a stripper are advisable, use it outdoors if at all possible, use heavy rubber gloves and eye protection, long sleeves and pants, have a place nearby to wash in case something does splash on you. This is the BEST! I can't recommend it too highly.

Excellent for removing paint from antique plaster frames. The product's consistency allows for great surface adhesion.

We're using this product to prepare vintage light fixtures for restoration for our new home. Many of these arrive covered with countless layers of old house paint. Most strip nicely with just one treatment, but even the worst ones are clean as a whistle with just two coats. This product is very user friendly; minimal fumes.

I've used Circa 1850 stripper to restore/refinish antiques for many years. I've tried other products but nothing comes close. It literally melts away old finishes. Anyone who does not like this product is probably trying to rush the job. Keep the work area wet & be patient, the old finish will just melt away. It will melt away your gloves as well, so be sure to wear the appropriate gloves!

I felt like this was an average product. On a flat surface it works well. But I struggled to get it to do much on vertical surfaces. The product just ran down the face and didn't have time to work on the wood. I put 3 coats on and it still had varnish on the wood. I might buy from [@]t next time.

Used to remove 44 yr old finish off teak and holly floor boards. Because it evaporates quickly, work small areas and sometimes requires working into the surface to be removed with the brush. I applied with brush and used a Maple Scraper, then finishing pad. The surface left behind was very clean, without any residue.

This was my first time ever stripping anything. I totally ENJOYED the experience. I used it on my front door. It was easy to apply, didn't cause a mess, didn't drip, didn't smell and it worked like a charm. I am ready to tackle any other project now that I have discovered this wonderful product.
