Process: Fine shaping

Fine shaping

The careful definition of the planned form, usually carried out with a flat chisel but sometimes a roundel or tooth chisel is employed. This could be a final level of finish and no further smoothing was required. Numerous figures on Roman reliefs were never carved beyond this stage, which could follow immediately on from roughing-out or perhaps an intermediate stage of rough shaping.
