    hey guys! Trying to smooth out my bio sculpt, and wondering if there was a quicker or better way than I have tried. I have tried-

    Freezing with duster, sanding
    Mineral spirits and sponge
    Heat gun on low
    Buffing while cold

    Cant seem to smooth some of my tool marks. Suggestions appreciated!!!

    I first use a beard sponge, and then use either a torch or heat gun.

    I started with 80 grit and worked my way up to 300 ish. Here is the result I also used air canister to freeze off the unwanted clay and I just crushed it off.

    Wait... let me revise what I just said. How I achieved the smooth look was by using wet sandpaper. After a while and as you progress with the grit paper it should reach something like this consistency in the picture.

    So like wet sanding before rebuffing clear coat on a car?

    I am not too sure MystrxXx, I've never done things to a car before so I wouldn't know
