Touch-Up Paing Blobs

My 05 GT's previous owner touched up several tiny chips on my hood, and other leading-edge places on the car. He used the original Ford touch-up paint, in the right code. Unfortunately, rather than use a micro-brush, he used the brush that came in the bottle, leaving little blobs of paint here and there. They're most noticeable on the hood.

Is there any safe way to get rid of those blobs without harming the surrounding paint or clearcoat? Some of the blobs have been there for years.

Then, if I can get rid of the blobs, would something like the Langka kit be better to use in the future? Any other ideas or suggestions?

Thanks!

EDIT: Forgive my fat-fingered mis-spelling in the title. Ugh!

Wet sanding and polishing... Start with 3000 grit and see how far that gets you, then maybe bump it down to 2500, 2000. Maybe even 1500 if its really bad. Then polish, it will be a lot easier with a machine, but you can do it by hand also.
