Removing the Sand Apps on the Sandtrooper

How long did it take for the lighter fluid to eat off the sand application to the figure? I applied the charcoal lighter fluid since I heard regular lighter fluid might be too strong over the paint apps with a q-tip. For some reason I was expecting to see results in 5 minutes.

The one problem that you are going to find with using any kind of petrochemical solvents on white plastic is an accelerated yellowing effect. I've seen various white plastics turn as yellow as buttered popcorn from having being treated this way.
