 Try  using  cuttle  bone,  works  well  and  safer  than  using  a  blade.  Although  blade  works  out  to  be  the  best.

 I  agree,  scratching  it  is  a  painful  process.  Alternatively  you  can  use  HEAT  GUN  (hot  air)  which  is  used  for  removing  paints,  rubber  based  glue  solutions  etc.  wit  proper  temp  settings  it  wil  easily  loosen  up  the  silicon  bead  which  can  be  pulled  off  easily.
 
 Note  heat  guns  are  not  popular  and  readily  available  in  bangalore.  If  you  are  lucky  may  be  you  can  get  it  on  rent  for  a  day  or  two.
 
 All  the  best.

 You  can  also  soak  it  with  paint  thinner  to  soften  it  and  it  will  be  easier  to  remove  with  a  blade
