Well it was bound to happen, I seem to have gotten my acrylic paints everywhere, carpet, hands, hair, splattering other paintings inadvertantly...and now my computer screen. I tried to be more careful, it made me really miss my watercolors, but the area where there was no paint on my monitor kept getting smaller and smaller. So I took the plunge and decided to try to clean it.
I made a mix of isopropal alcohol & distilled water and held my breath. It took a fair bit of dipping and wiping with my cloth but it works like a charm. Other than my fingernail scraping a small area when wiping, luckily near the top of my monitor. I have a soft screen and had no troubles so I am guessing this would work on all monitors as I think these ones are more finicky, you are not even supposed to touch them with your fingers...I don't really :)
So I thought I would post this tip as I have asked several artist friends if they knew how to clean acrylic off stuff and they seemed just as stumped as I was so hopefully this will help other artists see their screens again as I am sure I am not the only one out there with this "problem" ;)
