Removing an Oil Paint Stain on Oak Table

My niece has been painting by numbers with oil based paint, a number of spots of the paint have stained my oak kitchen table. How do I remove these spots without damaging the finish on the table?

If you take a Q-tip possibly with acetone on it, and carefully wipe it across the oil based paint on the table, that will help remove it, or mineral spirits/paint remover on a Q-tip, or gently scrape it off, that "might" work too - but honestly, there will be some finish removal because the oil based paint is "painted ontop" basically.


Take your time, and you may be able to only "get the applied paint" that you want to remove without going too deep that you've gotten into the finish of the table.
