    Un-doing old repair

    I have a broken bottle that I tried to repair back in the early to mid 70s. The material of choice was casting resin. I did a lousy job trying to get the pieces to fit flush and would like to dissolve the old casting resin and attempt a better repair. I don't want to scrape it out for fear it will alter the matting surfaces so is there anything that would dissolve the old resin? What would be a good replacement? The bottle was broken after it was dug and cleaned so the edges are pretty good. I'm sure a lot of you would say just pitch it or put the pieces in a box of brokens but it has really nice long bubbles and stretch marks and an iron pontil. Appreciate any help, Jim

    You might try soaking it in acetone to see if that will help dissolve or break down the resin.
