I was sanding a piece of sheetrock, but the paper covering is rough and I c
an't get a smooth finish. What do you recommend? I was thinking of painti
ng the paper with shellac to get it harden so that I can sand it smooth. O
r do I sand past the paper down to the plaster? Will it crumble or split i
f I try that?

Like Nate says, you have to skim coat it and then sand. You will never be
able to sand the paper smooth so you have to completely coat it and then sa
nd the coating.
