Removing Paint from an Antique Trunk

I am trying to remove old paint from a antique trunk. Any ideas? I do not want to ruin the canvas. Some of it flakes off, but it is covering the canvas and wood. I am not sure how long it has been on there. Thanks!

If it's an antique, please check with an antiques dealer before you do anything more. Antiques almost always lose value if they're refinished or restored. An expert will be able to tell you what's best for your trunk.

Check out trunk.com, they sell items you will need (including a paint remover) and a book that shows you how!
