Your dremel. Aside from the stones available you can also buy various diameter bits that are slotted to accept rolled sandpaper that can be held in place with either an interior cam or a small dental elastic.

Crisp cut crannies really, …………shouldnt need sanding

sometimes a folded piece of sandpaper over a home made wooden knife works too

When all else fails and you’ve had enough os sanding, a coat of dark glaze over the entire carving (between coats of finish)n then pulling all the glaze off except the “crannies” will help hide imperfections and actually add more depth of field

Good Luck and Nice Carving
