Removing Orange peel from matt/flat/satin/suede clear? cutting and buffing?

I've used Dupontís matting clear over black to get a nice satin black before, but it had a small bit of orange peel.....It wasnít much and since it was an experiment more then anything we didnít really care too much about it looking all great.

But, I recently had a request that I canít turn away, because itís something I've always wanted to do.

Bright white base
blue pearl/intercoat mix
Matting clear or Clear with matting agent top coat

But I want the finish to come out nice and smooth, with no orange peel at all........with regular clear, that's no problem, just cut and buff, but I don't think I can do that to matting clear with out ruining the satin look?

Is there any other way of getting rid of the slight orange peel, or "air-trash" fall out?

Maybe cut and flow-coat? that would take care of most of the orange peel, but I may still get dirt particls or other "air-trash" that may settle on it while drying.

There was a thread a short while back discussing the matte's.
Would be worth a search & read.

Depending on which and procedure,some would shine up with ANY working and others would stay flat.

May be better off flow coating and living with the small trash.I don't like it either but untill I get that 300K booth.....

I did do a search on the topic, but there wasn't many spicific comments on the cutting and buffing part of it all......There was one comment that simply said "yes you can buff" But no mention of what type of clear or method used.

Most likely I will have to go with a flow coat.
