  • I use paint in my daily teaching. once it is dry, it doesn't come out. not with mineral spirits, turpentine, anything. I have ruined MANY a pair of pants teaching theater.

  • It really depends on what kind of paint you were using. If it's latex paint for on the wall, it's virtually impossible to get it out.

  • If it's dry you can't get it out. The best advice I can give you is to paint back over the paint with a color that matches his T-shirt and then use it as a play shirt. I have many of my clothes that if you look close enough you can see where I was trying to save the shirt by painting the closest color to the shirt over where I accidently got paint on myself.
