A kidney tool is used to smooth out the still damp plaster.
Once the plaster has set the rough edges and corners are planed down with a plaster rasp. The arrow points to on of four pry holes that were created where building the second half of the mold.
This view better shows off two of four the pry holes around the flange. See arrows.
