Re: Removing adhesive from installed artifacts

Kory Berrett

Objects waxed in place might also let go with a twisting motion. Be careful with the solvent approach though. If the ceramics are low-fired earthenware types, or if they are unglazed, they will be porous and can absorb liquids, including the diluted adhesive, to become stained. Stoneware or porcelain are non-porous and pretty much stain proof (though not entirely.)
