    check here

    some info...

    Modern paints vary greatly in composition and it is not possible to give one treatment for all types. As a guide, use the solvent suggested on the paint tin label for thinning paint and cleaning brushes. Treat promptly, as set stains are very difficult to remove. If paint has dried, soften with glycerine before applying treatment.

    For oil paint, enamels and alkyd type paints, scrape off as much as possible and soak remaining stain in turpentine, or kerosene. Then wash in usual way.

    Latex or plastic water-base paints, e.g. Acrylic and P.V.A. will wash out easily with cold water when fresh. Remove any remaining stain with methylated spirits (wood alcohol) (test first to see that acetate fabrics are not affected). Once dry, these paints are virtually impossible to remove.

    glycerine is a generic name. Kinda like petroleum jelly is the generic name for Vaseline.

    I bet you could get it at a drug store though. Give that a try.

    Just make sure to ask for the brand name 'Nitro'.

    I hear Nito makes the best glycerine and most stores are really cool about selling it to you.

    no need to be a hater,

    but it is odd to spill paint on your good gear.
    Get some sweats or something.
