Ok so the hard part of carving is done now. Now we need to refine and smooth out those shapes. To do this I use a rasp - one for wood not metal.

Its been sanded now, but those cut marks are a bit too deep for my liking. So I will fill them up with a standard white filler - a universal filler will do.

With an old food knife, I smeared in filler and used the round edge on the knife to scrape between the two edges of the V cut / groove. This filled in quiet nicely..!
