Spotting screws

What's the right way, when spotting screws in the field, as far as sanding goes?
I'm looking for a level 4 finish.
I'm expecting to coat each screw 3 times.
What grit sanding screen should I use and do you sand between each coat? What about the dust left behind after sanding?
Do you wipe down the field with a damp sponge or anything before applying the next coat?
Thanks, Ron
