I have a pattern that I put on a piece of birch with Elmer's washable
school glue, I know I should have used my spray can of 3M spray
adhesive. But I can't get the can unclogged (someone know how?) and
needed the patern cut right away. Sooooo, how do I remove the paper
If the tip is clogged, then all you have to do is steal a tip from
another can. You can then let the original sit in thinner for a while
and try to clean it with a pin. Most spray cans are designed to clear
out the tip when you turn them upside down.
You might be able to purchase a set of tips at a hardware store...

1. Scrape and/or sand.
2. Clean the tip or swap one from another can.
Btw .. On some woods 3M can leave a sticky residue. I used it on a
project that, after removing the paper and sanding, I had to let it
sit for several days. When I returned to the it, a sticky residue had
surfaced and I had to re-sand it completely again.
If it's white glue (PVA adhesive?) then hot water, or hot water/
will soften it quickly, and it can be scraped or scrubbed off.
Sandpaper will finish the job after all is dry (but would clog
if you just sandpapered).
