Blending sctatches

Is there a way to blend in the surface of the scratch after I have used the AS plasticoat pen to seal off future AL corrosion. The plasticoat leaves a raised and uneven area where applied. I'm not sure if the attached photo clearly shows this.

When I painted my Airstream I got a couple small runs in the clearcoat. I was able to easily get them out using a small sanding block I got from the auto paint store. It was called "Mir K1500 sanding block". It was not cheap (around $17) but it sure did work. I used it with water until I could no longer feel any unevenness, then I used a post color sanding polish to bring the area to a high shine.
So Long!
