Dissolving it won't remove it all. It my in fact spread it.
Any base, ammonium hydroxide, will degrade it. But just keeping water on it for a while will cause it to release. When it was first made we tricked people into sticking their finger and thumb together. After threatening that they would have to be cut apart we just soaked in water and the bond released.
