    Try some hairspray? Otherwise get the exact same colour paint (with the same sheen level) and paint over it!

    Plasterboard or render?

    Jigsaw & replace section of plasterboard or lump hammer and cold chisel to remove cement render. Patch with sand and cement mortar.

    Perhaps applying washable acrylic paint now might be an alternative idea

    Would that be considered "Wear and tear" for renters? I've got some repairs to do myself:oops:
