Don't get discouraged!
If you put the mud on fairly thin and smoothly you can save a lot of dust by using the "wet" sanding method. Once the mud is really dry (over night) then just take a slightly dampened sponge and go over the dried mud in a circular motion being careful not to "gouge" it. What acutuall happens is that you soften the mud with the water and smooth it with the sponge. It will take a bit of experimenting to get it perfect but we find it works really well. We do the same thing when we have "drawen" gyprock joints. Have been using this method for years! It's particularly good when working in a lived-in house and you don't want a lot of dust floating in the air! John
