But still, once I get it painted how do I get that joker off the block? LOL does it get easier once the painting is done? katsarecool almost 6 years ago What about a long steel ruler with a box cutter? I have done this with a lot of success. Good luck and happy painting as “Bob” used to say! Dawn B Davies-McIninch almost 6 years ago let it dry through and then use a think letter opener, its a tricky job but worth taking the time over, have fun,dawnx JRobinWhitley almost 6 years ago Thanks Dawn! I wanted to make sure I didn’t mess up the paper Dawn B Davies-McIninch almost 6 years ago opps thin letter opener hehe bevmorgan almost 6 years ago I use a palette knife, and always pull it toward you as you move around the block, not into the block itself. Make sure the painting is completely dry before removing it. JRobinWhitley almost 6 years ago Thanks for the tip bev. Every one helps since Arches is a bit pricey and as a novice I don’t want to destroy it!
