So I was painting with some Createx Wicked colors and trying to use some label paper for masking. It for the most part released well but I wound up with some sticker residue. looking for something to clean it off with, the paint was sprayed a week ago. Tried rubbing alcohol on a part I didn't mind repainting and it ate right through the paint. Any thoughts on something else I could try? Thanks.

How about dabbing the sticky side of fresh label paper, cellophane tape, or another tape against the residue and repeatedly but gently pulling up? The residue will stick better to the fresh label paper or tape and will hopefully come off without damaging your original surface or finish. Seems a little safer than solvents. Good luck!
