    I love the shapes you made.

    For anyone not being able to find a cokin filter (like me), this is also a fine solution:

    Do you use an exacto knife for those tiny cuts?

  6. whatisname 87 months ago | reply

    yogma - I do. I find it a lot easier to cut tiny details with a smaller knife!

    Awesome custom shapes! I have a Cokin P filter holder and I'm just starting to make shapes. It's difficult to cut round edges. I'm impressed by how smooth your cuts are. Any tips?
