Step 4: Feather in outside edge (Left side)

Okay, we're going to do the same thing, this time on the left side. Move your finger over to the left. Pull the knife down and leave a nice ripple line inside the joint a few inches..

  

Now you should have a nice ripple line on each side ?

 

 

Step 5: Pull your knife down the middle
