Normally I'd say spray some water on it to get it to shine,but when we started using feather fill years ago,we wet sanded it and it soaked up water like a sponge and caused many problems ,I'm not sure about the slick sand but its basiclly the same product as far as I know...if it CAN be wet sanded you can wet it down to get a view of what it'll look like before you actually paint it...
I always do this with my urathane primers and epoxies...and if you were to wet sand it up to 800 it'll start to shine also....

since it needs a sealer anyway mabee it would be safer to go ahead and seal it with a few coats epoxy first then wet sand the epoxy up to 400-600-800.I'd hate to see you have any problems at this stage of the game and all you went through to get here...
