faux granite counterop

I am in desperate need of some help. I just finished using Rustoleum's Stoneffects faux granite for countertops, it is suppose to look like granite. Which it does, but here is my problem try as I did I just couldn't get it smoothed out. I thought it was smoothed out but when I put the finish epoxy on it showed all the mistakes (and there are many) I have made. How can I fix this problem? i thought if i just put another coat of the epoxy on it would help smooth things out, it helped but there are still so many bumps. The parts that are smooth are gorgeous and I think it looks better then the real thing because it is so shiny and new which is what I want the whole counter to look like.
If anyone has any thoughts about what I can do will be greatly appreciated.

Not really sure how it would work as I have never tried a system like this. You may be able to sand down the rough spots and then apply another coat of epoxy. I would try this on an area that won't be see or make a new sample to try it on though. Hope this helps you out.
