Copper sculpture

From: Ian Gale-Sinex <rigale>

I am writing on behalf of a colleague not on this list.  He is
treating a "doughboy" war memorial statue made of sheets of copper.
About twenty years ago, someone coated the surface with gold enamel
paint.  He would like to know if anyone has a suggestion for
removing this paint quickly and efficiently.  He would like to stay
away from chemical removers like methylene chloride.  One thought
was to use CO2.  Any suggestions would be appreciated, and I'll see
that he receives them.  Thanks very much.
