Paint touch up problem, help!

so I had a chip in my paint, and I bought one of the paint pen things to fix it so it didnt rust on me, I got it done, and it looks decent. so then I thought ill touch up some scratches I have, but I forgot to clean the scratches, so now I have black marks in the paint, and it is raised (not like an air pocket, but a glob of paint). Any suggestions on how to fix this?

EDIT: So before the game today, I searched the garage for some lacquer thinner, I found some methyl ethyl ketone, would this stuff work? I also have some paint thinner, will that work?

Re: Paint touch up problem, help!

would help if we knew what car you have and what year. Don't even think of putting paint thinner on it. If your repaired surface was dirty and the paint didn't bond you might
be able to pick it off with a needle.

I have a red 1997 ford f150, methyl ethyl ketone (MEK) worked great! took all of the paint pen stuff off with ease, even after I used the clear coat.
