    I have a tin of this stuff that was left a few months (5/6 empty) and it has dried hard.

    I don't think hardener got into it .Is there anything I can add to it so that I can use it again?

    I would try acetone as a first guess.

    I have a tiny bit of methylated spirits.I think that is the same or close

    I actually use it to thin the resin before adding the hardener.

    Then I use it as a diy rotten wood hardener.

    Since I couldn't get the resin to work I used hot gorilla glue this time.

    Methylated spirit is basically ethanol (which additives). Ljke acetone it is a polar solvent but it will not dissolve all the same stuff.
