    I just received a lovely piece that arrived with the display-side horn noticeably bent out of its socket. I can wiggle it a little but it it clearly still attached and I don’t want to make it worse by forcing it.

    Is there a way to weaken the adhesive without forcing it? Maybe something I could wedge into the base of the horn on the end of a pin? I’d really like to do so without ruining the paint or cracking the actual statue by wrenching the horn around too hard.

    This thread may be helpful – it describes removing a unicorn horn, but I would think the same technique would work.

    My keyboard is broken. I keep pressing "Escape", but I'm still here.

    It is really hard to remove the horns because we use epoxy. I don’t think there is a solvent for that.

    Thank you both! I’ll look into the unicorn horn, but if it looks like it’s going to make things worse I may just leave it.

    It’s just a little disappointing! It happened because the person who shipped it left a whole lot of empty space in the box. I’m lucky it wasn’t worse though.
