Take a hoof pick without a brush and place it point down on the seal. Hit the hoof pick with the back of a brush to puncture the seal. Pull back on the hoof pick and the seal will pop off.
Then, put the hydrophane into an new hoof oil can. That way it is fairly spill proof and you can use the brush to apply the hydrophane. Make sure to write "hydrophane" on the can with a sharpie so no one mistakes it for hoof oil.
I hope that helps.
