Smudge on black giclee - help needed

So, I was reframing a friend's portrait tonight, and I notice a few small specks in the black field. I attempted to remove them by dabbing with a grey kneadable eraser, however as you can see it left a mark. I have done this successfully so many times on screenprints that I didn't stop to think that maybe I shouldn't for a giclee.

Anybody have any advice to make this less noticable? I'm not going to try to hide it from him, but I'm hoping I can do something to make it better.

Thanks in advance. :pint:

:D That's Plan B. Just fired off an e-mail to Static Medium as well, I guess if anyone would know they would.

Reach out to Poster Mountain and see what they say. Not sure how difficult it will be for giclee.

There is also this thread: viewtopic.php?f=3&t=101129
