A Chemical Reaction

I had to pick up some of the Heavy Duty paint stripper to make a dent on this one.
The cheep stuff was just not cutting through. There was 12 layers of varnish and 3 layers of acrylic before you reach the Nitro. Finally as you can see this new stuff is doing the job.
It make's an eeery crackling noise as it works... Kinda like Snap, Crackle and Pop.
The veining that you see is caused as the chemical works it's way down layer by layer.
Looks cool right.

Oh Yeah! Always wear Gloves and Goggles people.... this stuff will burn the hell out of your skin not to mention your eyes.
