No need to sand after mist coating... unless you've done it wrong. :shock:

If you have to and, as wine~o says, shouldn't need to unless you've painted over a problem - maximum 120 grit (preferably 240) and even then you want to be gentle and re-mist any bald patches

Sorry to disagree guys but you should sand your mist coat.

Mist coat - fill - sand has always been the way to go in the decorating game, whether it be with a pole sander, sanding pads or the newer dustless sanders.

I generally sand or at least denib between every coat.

Ahhh I always sand, fill, then mist coat. I've been getting it wrong then :help:

BTW I assumed (perhaps stupidly) that this was new plaster...

Yeah, mist coat on new plaster. I sand it to completely remove any orange peel effect from the rolled mist coat and to sort out all the filling that's been done. Leaves a far flatter finish once done.

With Fitzy on this, always sand between coats of emulsion, mist coat included, and never ever sand bare plaster.

I do a quick sand (feel with my hand for any obvious bits that need sanding) before a mist coat knowing that I will do a more thorough fill and sand after the mist coat as I find the mist coat helps to show up any bits that I might otherwise not see.
