Let me preface this by saying I really hate chemical strippers. As Grex said in his comment from my previous post, you undoubtedly spend more time cleaning up than actually stripping. I too love my heatgun. But having a two-year old in the house makes me very concerned when it comes to the whole lead paint issue. Soy-Gel encapsulates the lead paint and prevents it from becoming airborne particles. Just to be on the safe side I don't scrape the paint...if it doesn't just "fall off" I apply more stripper. That being said, here are the photos of this AWSOME gel in action.
