First comes pink, followed by red. I believe taupe was a light coat afterthought, because I scrape right through it to notice the bright white. And then I get stuck at the royal blue. At this point, another application of the stripper is needed. The blue and green kind of go out together. If I'm real lucky, I get the last three all in one scrape. But usually, when I get near the base, the honey yellow layer is pretty stubborn. Ummm, that's 7 layers. S-E-V-E-N. Definitely a biblical creation period. The instructions sounded so easy. And of course the pictures show it bubbling up and effortlessly scrape right off.
