My tip:

- using a sharp knife, cut two cuts in the trace
- use the soldering iron to heat and remove the small fraction of copper
between the two cuts

Advantage #1: you don't need to buy anything
Advantage #2: it hardly damages the ressin
Advantage #3: you can even remove the connection between two pads
Advantage #4: You can make arbitrarly large areas blank; could be
usefull for isolation areas

Believe me, this works. Even on epoxy, but just as well on pertinax.
