    We had a joiner fit some skirting to a new false chimney breast. He used caulk and smoothed with his finger leaving quite a raised line on the plaster (grr)

    Will it sand? It's so frustrating as it's still easily smoothed off when applied!

    Just worried I'll sand and make a mess..

    It doesn't sand at all well, it gets messy.

    Quicker to scrape off, and redo as necessary.

    So easy to smooth out whilst still wet, as you say.
