I've got a number of nice heavy brass hinges with splotches of paint on them. Unfortunately this paint appears to be decades old and is rock-hard. It appears to be old oil-based paint but I'm not sure.
The most visible place where paint was applied is the decorative pins that have ball shaped ends. Scraping or sanding without scratching the brass seems impossible. So that leaves soaking in some sort of stripping agent. Are there any concerns with using such products with brass or any specific products and/or approaches recommended?
