sanding stipple on smooth walls?
About paper- the paint will be harder than the mud, so it won't scratch so easy. I usually will take 2 pieces of the paper and rub then together to make them a little less aggressive
Recoat time is on can-- do not need full cure.
Technique is as important to small stipple as is roller nap. Also quality roller vs cheapo.
I almost always use a 1/2, wooster super fab or Purty white dove.
First stroke applies paint about 1 1/2 width of roller, then a couple of strokes to spread that out even, then finish long even stroke ceil to floor to finish. Sometimes I will do about a 4' section in the put on spread mode and then fall back and do most of it with the finish stroke. That gives the paint a little time to settle and makes for smaller stipple. But you must make sure that it is still wet and not stetting up. That will cause sheen differences..
