I have a 1930s linoleum rug with wonderful artwork of cowboys and cowgirls as its pattern. At some point earlier than the 1970s, someone dripped white paint in many spots on it which detracts from the great overall look of this little piece of history.
I haven't tried to figure out if the paint is oil or water-based, (or if it even may have lead it). However, I'm thinking, rather than using a solution of some kind that may cause a chemical reaction with the unidentified paint maybe I could carefully scrape it off. I sure don't want to harm the cowboy, etc. pictures, but I'm thinking the pattern may be deeper into the linoleum than just on the surface of it. Thank you for any suggestions on how to remove these paint drips.'
