Default How do you remove rustoleum paint??????

Ok so my niece had to paint the volcano she is using for her school project and my brother decided we'd use rustoleum paint from the can. Bad idea, anyway we're done but now my niece 2 nephews and I have black rustoleum paint covering our hands and parts of the chest. What is the quickest and safest way to get this off before my sister gets home and has a fit???? We tried soap and water, and alcohol but they didn't work.

I've had luck with gasoline, but be careful using that around a child, obviously.

On the nail polish remover, be sure you get the kind with acetone in it. Without the acetone, it won't work as well.

Also, I'd be trying to get it off now instead of in the morning as Rustoleum cures really hard pretty quick.
