Yes, I keep brushing and brushing - especially in the darkest part of the
image, they don't come off easily...

I used the same - soft, watercolor wash - brush I use for smoothing the
coating. Some dabbing is needed in the shadows (they're stubborn). If the
underlying coatings had enough exposure + were developed to completion,
they won't come off -> but you can loose some delicacy.

I think other (more experienced) people may add many tips about erasing
layers since I have only removed one layer up now. I don't want to (and
hope I will not have to) resort to that type of manipulation again, it's
too stressful...
