Touch up paint stick question

If you just did it today you may be able to use the clay bar. I had used some one time on my truck and the same thing happened to me. I went to my buddies body shop and we used like a cleaner wax on it and just kind of rubbed it out till it was gone.

Technically you'd want to sand it smooth. This video might be of help: e/Learning :: ScratchFix 2in1

Another way is to use a product like Langka which will soften the "blob" and allow you to squeegee it off.

No not at all. You cannot even tell where we had applied the paint. Worked real well.
