Step 3

Now create another Bezier Curve and move it slightly to the up so that you can see the previously created Curve object. We will use the newly created curve to tapering the main object.

Select the previously created curve which you have changed the depth value. Now go to Geometry then in the Taper Object select the new curve. You can clearly see how the main curve object has deformed.
