Asked by michael

Have ventilated for four weeks, plus heaters and filters. It is painted on both sheet rock and plaster walls. Are there any options to remove it, to cover it etc. Unable to move in

Your painter tricked you then, because acetone is a well known solvent.

Zinsser makes a shellac based wall sealer that we have had very good luck with.Here is a link to a video about shellac production.

Good luck!
