Bodged touch up paint on car how to remove?

Found 3rd Jul
So I tried doing some touch paint and it looks crap.

Anyway to remove so I can try again? Would this work or damage the paint in surrounding areas?

give us a pic showing the paint. Are we talking a scratch or a respray area?
Has it just been done - if so the paint may still be soft and you might be able to tidy with propyl alcohol and a cloth.

No, its fine on paint thats dry/set. Clean/wash afterwards obviously, but Id try it before getting into sanding. thinners are a mix of alcohol and acetone that act as a solvent for the paint. use a soft cloth - dont rub too hard.

When doing scratches ignore the brush with the paint. you need a very fine artists brush or use a toothpick/matchstick and pare it down to a very thin end and use that to apply. with the standard brushes you usually get way too much paint on.

I did my own paint job on the bumpers of my car - if you stuff it up you can use fine sandpaper to clean up the area which will remove the paint, re-apply the primer and re-paint, I used spray cans, don't forget the lacquer to seal it.
