    If this is for Plexiglass then I think I heard that you could also sand it smooth. The procedure was something like take the highest grit sandpaper you can find like 1000 grit and wet sand the plexi. Then if you want it even smoother then you can take and gradually increase the grit as you sand. Then again a propane or oxy/acteylene torch can smooth it out to allthough with this method you have you be carefull and make sure you dont stay in one spot for too long or it will melt the plexi but eventually it will smooth it out very very nicely. The heat of the flame just barely touching the Plexi surface causes a very this layer on the top of the plexi to melt and run into any imperfections and such. Hope this helps as well
