Can I sand slighly cured drippy Aura

1st time using Aura. I generally give my brushes and sleeves a slight wetness.....prior to loading them up. Cutting in with the very slightly dampened brush was fine. The Aura MF was disaster. I had to get it over I stopped, and used a fresh non wetted roller.

The long and short of it, I have one wall that has tons of runny sags on them.
I was planning to topcoat and finish in 1 day, but I'm planing to let the paint cure, take some 120 grit and sand down the sags before doing a 2nd topcoat.

Any reasons why I could/should not be sanding fresh paint.....

You should be able to sand it. It just may be a bit more of struggle with sandpaper clogging than if the paint was cured.

I was tired, beat,spent...
Lugging that damm 12" Miter Saw wore me out ;-)
I've got my Festool Vac/ Random Oribital and plan to just do a once over....

I'm using Muralo Ultra. as my benchmark reference..
We'll see how this highly talked/hyped paint compares.

FWIW, I've used regal in the past...and switched

Just some thoughts....
The paint is quite rubberish....

120 Grit on Random Orbit....some heat generated.....on the disc.
When you look at the disk, you can *peel off the * accumulated sanding which pooled up in various areas of the disk and it's like gummy rubber - kinda like the play rubber you get in the ~red egg~ containers....

Yep, that's what happens when sanding uncured paint.

2nd times the charm......

Just need to figure out how to get my cut brush cleaner...inside middle has some remnants even after warm water/soap and brush out with stainless comb.

Still not sure how I would compare it to my benchmark - Muralo Ultra.

Stipple, etc with Pro Dooz Roller was just as good compared to the ~recommended~ MF Aura Roller.
