    • Wet the surface with absorbent cotton or a little water, and then lightly sand it with 2500-grit fine sandpaper.

    • This step can be performed as many times as necessary.

    • To restore a smooth surface, continue sanding with 3000 grit sandpaper in the same way as in the previous step.

    • The finer the sandpaper, the smoother it will be.
