Reviving old Puch Touch-up Paint.....

I've got every Puch paint stick color under the sun, but they're all dried up. Anyone have success bringing these paint sticks back to life? Lacquer thinner? (edited)

I've used brake parts cleaner before

My money would be on lacquer thinner, being it's old as it is. Is there any left over smell to it? That could give you a hint. Try on your least favorate to give it a try.

I tried using a little brake cleaner and was able to revive the paint to some extent, but it's still a little light on color. Gonna try lacquer thinner next. There's plenty of paint pigment still left in these bottles. (edited)

Just tried lacquer thinner in another Puch paint stick tube. Much better results. Even took the paint off the label on the tube.

Since brake clean evaporates quickly I would not see that as a good option.

Lacquer thinner, or a very small amount of toluene

Yeah that's why used it, then touched up the bike and then a year later I used it again
