Cured silicone can only be removed mechanically from a surface once cured with either a specialist tool or a sharp blade. Alternatively, soak a cloth with turpentine/paraffin and place over the residue. Put a plastic sheet over the cloth to prevent drying and leave overnight. It should be swollen enough to remove.
