Stripping paint from mantle

Postby runsie on Mon Jul 09, 2018 10:50 pm

Hi - new here - hi!!
I want to strip the (most likely) lead paint from this mantle.
I don't want to harm any of the ornate detail. I am afraid if I use a chemical stripper it will destroy the details.
I am considering an infrared speedheater.

Has anyone had success doing something similar?
