From thinner material, cut a disk of the desired flare radius to use as a scraper.
Draw a stop line on the baseboard where you want the port to stretch to.

Ten things


Three moulds
Three moulds before any filler is added, along with the scrapers for each


Before sanding
Sand off any high points between applications

A flat chisel helps remove buildup on baseboard outside flare zone


Sanded smooth


Whilst it is possible to use slightly larger MDF disks as you get closer to the baseboard, the savings in Bondo are minimal. It's easier to just make them all the same size.
