Glitter removal- how to? Suggestions appreciated.

Submitted to Community Café

Does anyone have a proven tip or trick to removed glitter from a plastic item? Ive tried boiling water -wire brush and emory board and it was a bit tedious and incomplete.

I like the Rustoleum spray paint primer or satin solid color so much better than the glittered finish, I feel it elevates the items look looking more porcelain like. I need to strip 9 more deer heads.

Im thinking there might be an easier way?
Thanks in advance for any comments or suggestions!
