Need help with a snow globe!

Post by Jerry B. »

I'm afraid Nipper soiled the water in his globe. He's a naughty pup. I need help separating the base from the globe. I tried heating with my heat gun and I was unable to separate the two pieces. Any suggestions?

Thanks, Jerry Blais

Can you post a pic when the restoration is complete - I wasn't aware there were Nipper snow globes.
