    Not being able to see it The mudding wasn't done correctly. Most drywall is, I called compounded, three times. one taping. A second coat feathering out further than the taping and a final coat of compound. Allowing each coat to dry.Sand after the last coat. If this was done there should be few defects showing.

    i use a wet natural rubber sponge to wipe down the compound about a 1/2 hour after using the compound it lessens the sanding

    Did you happen to forget to sand the whole thing before putting on your second and third layer of mud? I don't mean just a quick sanding job, I mean a seamless, baby bottom smooth, sand till your arms fall off job. That is what is needed. You'll need to re-sand, then skim the whole ceiling. I am just about to do mine. Not a fun thing to do either!
