Default Removing paint from sandstone

I have a sandstone fireplace surround that has been tastefully painted
with blue emulsion. I'm guessing thet the paint has been in place for
a couple of years. I've tried Nitro Morse but am having difficulty
getting a completely clean finish. Any ideas on how to remove the
paint without damaging the stone underneath?

I'm no stone mason but could the emulsion have soaked into the stone? You
might have to get it lighly sandblasted or something of that ilk

Cheers
