BISQUE - Filing

ca: BESCUIT – Llimat

es: BIZCOCHO – Limado

Bisque filing is to sandpaper or file to correct the shape or to smooth off a rough surface. The best instrument to use is a fettling knife made of metal with very strong rough surfaces; one side is rounded and is very good for pieces that are curved. An electric tile cutter can be used for filing down corners and edges of tiles.
