  1. Do you think this will work with a single crease in a developed photo? I developed a photo in a darkroom for my class and when someone put it through a dryer it came out with a long crease in it. My teacher said to iron it out and i dont know how and I want to be sure I have it right so i dont mess it up more.

  2. Does it have to be a specific water? Because on another video they mentioned that using 'distilled water' is the way to go.

  3. Doe this work if our art is composed of graphite? The last time I tried to flatten my sketch with an iron, the graphite slightly smeared…

  4. so i tried some watercolor on mixed media paper and it warped even though i didnt use much paint and it was meant for watercolor. any tips on what i should do

  5. Does this work if I haven't outlined and colored yet and need to do it after flattening ( Because it rained ) The paper is dry.

  6. I hope this works my sister is on kinder and my brother ruined her 100th day cape (Paper) And I tried using a roller pin and it didn't work and if her cape isn't flat she won't be apart of the 100th day of school performance this meant a lot to her she wants to be apart of it I don't know what will happen but when I was in kinder I made a cape to but not made out of paper like a fabric mine was great but I don't know about my sisters I want her to be apart of this so I wasted my time instead of sleeping and helping and watching this video. Alright I watched the video I will force my mommy to do this! Not to be rude but I'll ask her instead night to me! 😁 Hope this works tysm!
