I've tried sanding, paint thinner and remover, a heat gun and anything else I could think of to remove latex drips and runs from drywall walls. My daughter's room is done this way and now I want to repaint and can't find a way to get the walls smooth short of hanging new drywall. If anyone has a method of getting these drips and runs off, PLEASE tell me. I'm desperate!! I met a lady at the local paint store that has the same delima.

Thanks,
Alecia

Sanding always worked for me. Try a medium grit sanding screen.

I tried sanding and even used the coarse sandpaper. It's like trying to sand a rubber ball. I don't know what else to try short of replacing the the drywall.

I said a sanding SCREEN, not sandpaper. The screens work better in this situation. Sanding screens are used to smooth drywall mud (joint compound). They are available in different grits.

Thanks so much for your reply. I apologize for not reading closer. I've never heard of a sanding screen but I'll sure be looking for one tomorrow.

Thanks,
