the purpose is to seal your lamination and to have a smooth surface once sanded flat. usually small dings use one layer of cloth, 4 oz will feather easier. if you have an orbital sander that is a safer than using a grinder, if not just good old fashion elbow grease. always fill your dings higher than the surrounding area, it is better to sand down than have to fill again.
