Fixing dried touchup paint?

The previous owner worked at an infinity dealer and used infinity red touchup paint on my performance red mustang. It is not in globs or uneven the problem is that it's a different color. Does anyone know how I can remove it so that I can apply the correct color?

This is what it looks like:

As long as there is not a large amount of clear coat on top of the touch up paint you should be able to scratch it off with your fingernail.

When I scratch it with my finger it comes off in little tiny flakes. I stopped doing that because I didn't want to ruin the paint underneath. Would it work better to use sandpaper?

If you use sandpaper you will ruin the paint for sure , your fingernail will not damage the factory paint of clear ,the touhup paint in your pics will flake off because its just smeared on there , when you reapply just fill in the scratch followed by a clear
