I believe you mean upholstered chair. You might have more luck finding a solution--try chipping it off.

You didn't say if the paint was on the chair or on the material, but I recommend a product that should take care of both things. It's called "GOOP" and you can find it in your Grocery store. It is really good at removing dried paint..

Ho you remove gloss paint from cloths?

As an artist, I worked with my husband with our small t-shirt printing business before. To remove the glossy paint or rubberized paint from fabric, you can use lacquer thinner. Put a small amount of lacquer thinner to the cloth with glossy paint. Rub it with a small piece of cloth, probably cotton cloth.


After removing the paint but there are stains, do it again. Lacquer thinner is used to dilutes, dissolve and clean lacquer products. It is strong and deteriorates rapidly the glossy paint on fabric.

I wonder if anybody can offer advice? I have been painting a door frame with gloss white paint. I have just carried an upholstered chair through the door way and brushed against the wet paint!

There's a smudge of white gloss paint on the chair, I'm so heat broken. The chair is made from a velvet chenille type fabric. Please, I would really appreciate any advice on how to remove gloss paint from upholstery. I'm looking for something that won't leave a stain. I would really appreciate any replies, Thanks so much.

I have a problem with permanent paints. I was so busy helping my son and making sure that he and the area was clean that I didn't think about me.
