: How do I Remove the Varnish for a Touch-Up?

Hi there,

I love painting, but I am not a professional by any means, so I might be quite clueless in some areas. Just bear with me, I guess. :P

So I finished an acrylic painting and went ahead to brush on some varnish. I guess I forgot to dust off the dirt and fibers from my brush, so when the varnish dried there was some dust and fibers trapped in the varnish. :/

Does anyone know of a way to get rid of that? I'm only really concerned about one particular spot, so I'm not looking to get rid of all of the varnish.

What varnish did you use, they all have different properties, I hope it wasn't acrylic, not much you can do with that.
