Heat guns are also a great way to remove old paint, varnish and other finishes. They are especially good at taking off multiple layers of paint all at once. The heat gun softens the paint causing it to bubble up making it easy to remove with a metal scraper.
Similarly one may ask, can you use a heat gun to remove wallpaper?
While he was researching that online, he found out you can use a heat gun to remove wallpaper, too! Don’t use anything other than the heat gun and a paint scraper/ wallpaper scraper. (Scoring won’t help, it will just make it worse.), Hold the heat gun about 6″ away from the wallpaper and keep it constantly moving.
