Hi- I'm new here, I have a few finishing question. I'm doing a commercial job , basically there's steel stud framing and some sheets have been put up vertically creating floor to ceiling butt joints with horizontal recess joints running into it from one side.
  • No texture whatsoever and high sheen paint.
  • QUESTION- I have about 24"- on each side , sanded litely twice. 3 coats are on. I'm still feeling a somewhat abrupt transition where the existing wall meets the compound.
  • Start sanding it way down?
  • Keep fanning
it out? Any ideas ?

never had that problem. edges usually sand down fine. you will feel a difference in textures from painted to sanded mud. the painted wall has roller texture the sanded mud is smooth. thats why painters "spot prime"(or 2 coat) patches. if painter only rolls on 1 coat you will see the difference. even without high gloss dark color paints.
