    Due to heat, my rosin cake has reformed into a shape that does not facilitate application. What's a good way to reshape it into something usable?

    I put mine in the sun for an hour or so in the container so that when it hardens it takes on the right shape.
     
  3. I just use a lighter to reshape it. If you do it often before it gets really deformed it works better, and it leaves a nice fresh surface.
