    I just use Testors fine grit and wrap it around a carpenters pencil...the triangle shape of the pencil helps with the circular of the head and behind ears and such.

    ^I use these as well. Thanks for the pencil idea. I also use emery boards for some detailed areas.

    For cleaning or altering casts, I'd also recommend a decent set of metal sculpting tools and quality set micro files to get into small spaces/details. A set of dentist's tools also come in handy too.

    Yes, emery boards are really handy... I use them a lot. I also use sanding sticks for small or hard to reach spots.

    Emery boards are a customizer's friend.
