Removing spray paint from frame

Ive sprayed my frame after being sand blasted with gray antirust primer from a spray can (probebly just normal spray paint with a fency name) and now i want to remove it. Relativly thin layer some im hoping to save the cost of another blast. Any tips?
Thanks again

Steel wool should get it off.

^^ Both of the above. Don't use a heavy grade of steel wool. 000 should work.

Spray paint will come off with a good soak in Purple Power.
