Since it's essentially coloured wax, I wonder if the technique used to
remove wax (candle wax, usually) from clothing might work? It's
basically a case of ironing a sheet of brown (wrapping) paper over the
wax. Paper-on-paper probably won't work as well as paper-on-cloth, so
I'd try it on something unimportant first!
