    It's important to wait until the paint has completely cured before you decide to tackle it. If there is still some wetness, trying to fix the drip could make it worse.
    Although my walls are covered with drips from my total lack of painting skills, I have come across a few tips for salvaging freshly painted walls.

    To remove the drip you can do one of the following:
    -Sand the drip line in a single direction with 220 grit sandpaper. (Make sure that you don't sand any of the surrounding wall.) Clean up the dust.
    -You can buy a paint scraper to scrape up drip marks as well as marks made from rollers.
    -You can also use a razor blade to scrape up a drip. This is good for latex paint that may form ridges more easily.

    After you have removed the drip, you also have a few options for painting:
    -Gently brush on a layer with the tip of a small bristle brush.
    -Use a foam brush to avoid visible strokes that can be associated with bristle brushes.
    -Roll on a couple thin layers with a roller brush.

    Let dry, and you should be set.
