Does anyone have any suggestions for me on how to clear a smudge of oil-based paint from carpet?

If it's plush carpet, you can snip the tips of the fibers to remove paint. You may be able to scrape off excess with dull knife. Once oil-based paint has dried, it's next to impossible to remove. If solvent is used, test first in inconspicuous place first for ill effects. Use white rag and solvent and blot from outside toward stain to prevent spreading.
