I have done this type of process on a number of occasions and found that
mineral spirits (which I am sure is what the brush revitalizer stuff is)
does the best at pealing even the harshest paints from my metal figures
don't trust plastic since I work in that type of business).  The only
problem that I had in the past was small crevasses and other hard to

    So one day while I was brushing my teeth, the idea of using the
brush on the mini would help to remove some of those nasty flakes of
that just wouldn't come off.  It works like a charm.  I have found
using all types of brushes, from tooth brushes to pipe cleaners even
brillo-pads.  Once the miniatures are done in the mineral spirits (which
highly flammable BTW), I would wash them in water and use just a tiny
bit of
Clorox powder in my hand while working the brush over the mini.  That
to take off the rest of the primer (if there was any) and the remaining
release that was used when the mini was cast.  This leaves the miniature
with a 'dull' appearance, which I find is easier to paint since the
has more to grip without using primer.

Works great, just thought I would share.
