Hints and Tips #1

Wed Apr 9, 2014, 2:18 PM



Hello and welcome to the first instalments of 'Hints & Tips' and 
I hope these short and simple Tutorials will help boost and
inspire YOU to learn and create your own works in the many 
forms and mediums that you may work in.

SO... The first Hint/Tip is -

FIXING WARPED FINISHED WATERCOLOUR PAINTING
(lumpy or uneven surface)

steps by TheWelshTranslator

STEPS

1- The warped painting
2 - Turn the painting around and cover the back
with plenty of water from corner to corner
3- Place in a large hardback book between blank pages
4- Close the book and place something heavy on it and wait 
30 to 50 minutes so that the pages absorb the moisture
5- You open the book and the painting is flat

I hope this helps

buckling still happens even if you previously stretched it

if you're using tape, like I use to >_>

but if you use a stapler (your usual one)  and a wooden plate, it wont buckle :D

it uses like a ton of staples "xD but it gets you neat results :dummy:

takes a couple of tries for practice xD

Do you have any tips for if the watercolor is larger than a book?

find a place that sells wood and buy two slabs, cover both sides with plastic and seal them tight, press them together with the painting inside and cover the painting with the other slab of wood... then do the same as the book. but it should take longer to dry as the only thing that absorbs the moisture is air.. I have not tried this but in theory it should work
