Does anyone know how to remove printed-on decals?

Or if this part comes in plain gold

It’s not that pressing of an issue, but it would be nice to know if this can be done without damaging pieces.

(I’m not sure where this topic should go so move it if it needs to be)

I am pretty sure @Likus would know.

I believe nail polish remover would work, tho not entirely sure on that.

No, nail polish removal is a gamble. Depending on the brand you may end up with a grainy texture, as it’s likely the piece will begin to melt with even the slightest application. Your best bet is brasso.


I pour some brasso onto a paper plate. Then I apply brasso to the printed area with q-tips by rubbing it around in a circular motion until the print comes off.


Brasso is highly popular and effective.
Nail polish is possible, although you may want to use a fine grit sandpaper to smooth the de-printed area out.


I just use a regular eraser. Doesn’t hurt the piece in anyway, and is very easy to use.


A friend of mine found that a less-abrasive toothpaste and brush can do the trick, alongside an eraser. Takes time and close care, but it works.
