And the image too, if you aren't careful:)

There are selective bleaches for E6, but I don't know if they would work 
at all on colour neg. Probably not. They are expensive, toxic and complex, 
and I think you will have to make them up from raw chemical formulae. 
Unfortunately I am having a hard time recalling where I saw the recipes...

If the worst comes to the worst, duping onto slide stock may work, using 
increased exposure to cancel some of the density.
