Levigatura

When the inlay is glued on his support, it is still hidden from the veil of adhesive paper which has protected the wood during all these complex phases. The adhesive paper is abraded using the sandpaper. They use a special machine but the work is finished removing every residue of adhesive paper by hand. During this phase the inlaid drawing resurfaces. By the smoothing the work is leveled and the shades of woods are underlined.
