after i gesso my board type canvases, i only want just a very little sanding/smoothing, I found using a 4 sides sponge nail file very handy for this!  Ladies, I think you know what I'm refering to - the guys maybe not so much. Its a small, rectangle sponge about an 1 on each side, that has file paper on each of 4 sides ranging from file to buff.  Its easier to hold, comfortable and super light and you can buy them at the dollar tree for a buck!  works perfect for me.

I know exactly what you are referring to, Sonja and I have one somewhere.

Great tip,  :thankyou:
