The paint acidity and the chemicals of the plaster creates a negative effect on the stones like the marble and left behind the discoloration and other stains as well. The users need to follow the natural cleaning processes to safely detach the plaster and the paint from the surface of the stone. The users can easily detach the paint from stone by gathering the below-mentioned materials and then following the below-defined step by step procedure:

The users are advised to use the brush affixed to the vacuum so as to avoid scratching the stone surface. The users need to hold up the nozzle above the stone surface rather than drifting it within the stone surface.
- Scrape Off The Paint: Then the users need to scape off the paint and the plaster by using the putty knife. They need to hold up the knife at near about ten-degree angle with its blade corner against the paint or plaster spill. The users need to apply the slight pressure while scraping down the plaster and the paint. The users need to keep on working till they detach the large pieces of the paint or plaster spills.
