I have found, at my local hobby shop, a kind of oversized popsicle stick that is a fine sanding tool. Very comfortable to work with and provides a rigid backing for the sandpaper... Or you could just use super fine paper.

Emery boards for filing fingernails can be found inexpensively at most dollar stores, in a variety of shapes and sizes, or you can make your own with sandpaper, rubber cement, and tongue depressors (or popsicle sticks). Grit ranges from 80 to 220 are most ueful.
