I have a huge question about how to get a piece of accidentally crazy glued pattern to the pumpkin off? Without losing the orange paint. I've soaked in warm water for a little over an hour and it's still on as you can see in the picture. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I know it's really hard to match michaels pumpkin orange. I've tried several times before with no success.

Sadly, :Depressed:

I don't think you can remove the Crazy Glue - with-out the Paint going with it..

So I would use and X-acto, to scrape it off, this way you don't break it, or go further than you want.

Side Note: Wetting it - makes it worse. ALL those Crazy/Super / Gorilla Glues need Moisture to work.
This is Why it does not cure/Stick inside the Bottle, When it Leave the Bottle, it starts to cure because......
there is Moisture in the Air...

Thank you so much for the great advice Stoney, I didn't know re soaking is bad. I kinda scratched it off as best as i could with tweezers, lol! It's still on there but smaller. Next time I'm going to peel the pattern before I glue, lol! I learned a valuable lesson. :Thumbs_Up:

Wait was this a Piece that broke and you glued back on?

If So, Yes! Remove the Entire Pattern First, before making repairs..

Yes it was a piece that broke with the pattern still on it. So I know now to take the pattern off a broken piece first before I glue it. Stupid mistake by me
