You really can't. Chip off main drip with a putty knife and with a 6" broad knife spackle ( or taping compound) the rest to be smooth. Sand and prime.

If you have quite a few paint drips... Add a bunch more! Make it your accent wall. Call it rain drop wall art ! I just made you rich, your welcome !
