You can save a lot of time, sanding, and dust by using a surform tool to remove excess material from the proud areas when the epoxy, silica, filler mix is partially cured. When the putty is just cured enough that you can barely make a dent with your thumbnail, the surform will cut the excess cleanly. The Stanley Surform shaver, a $4.00 tool, works well on concave surfaces.
