Default Faux wall

We just moved into a 1983 house.everything is fine other then we have this big yellow/orange textured faux wall.
the people before us had some wall decor and one of them had a candle on it.we saw the stain on that wall from the candle smoke,its black and it looks terrible.Not sure how to fix it.It looks like 3different colors that they used.
what do we do?my husband tried to take similar color and sponge over the stain but now its worse

That's the problem with faux finishes, you can't touch them up.
Your best bet is to hang a picture over the bad spot or redo the whole wall/room.
