A small bottle of nail polish remover is much cheaper and the benefit of that is he can use it to remove his ladies fingernail polish when he's trying to earn brownie points to purchase another set of darts.   Big Grin

There has to be a method to the madness.
 That's an good Idea if acetone will remove the paint some modern paint it will not touch + the smallest can of paint remover will remove the paint from his next 10,000 sets of darts. Big Grin

Not sure if I've missed a thread somewhere but did anyone find a way to remove coloured coatings ( without sanding ) where acetone did not work?

Maybe try cooking in alum. Some managed to get rid of coatings and not only the broken point.
But one managed to get his darts coated with it  Smile
So no guarantee. Good luck!

I got a deal on a set of Designa pink ladies soft tip darts and soaked them in acetone to remove the paint. An added bonus is there is better grip on the darts now without the paint in the rings.

No longer throwing pink darts has to be a bonus too!
