I've been using Paasche Air Eraser Compound (AEX-5) as a sand blasting

with brass?

I remove excess solder by scraping it off. Sometimes tedious for
sure. I use a scraper from McMaster Carr

See the A and B Machinist's Scrapers.

Your dentist is usually willing to part with some interesting
forms of scraping tools. I have several and find them handy
for tight spaces.
