|I've found a way to confine ELO and possibly other solvents to a specific area.
In my case I wanted to remove markings on a curved surface without the fluid flowing away,
but the trick is also useful if you want to remove a specific marking without disturbing others nearby.
What you do is cut a piece of toilet paper so it's just large enough to cover the lettering you wish to remove,
place it on the model, then let the fluid soak into it.
I repeatedly used a Q-Tip to transfer the fluid,
and pressed it into the TP until I could clearly see all the letters underneath.
After letting the markings soak for a few minutes,
I removed the toilet paper and the lettering came off with very little pressure.
Adjacent letters / numbers aren't affected because the toilet paper didn't touch them,
and neither did the soaked Q-Tips.
