Rebirth RO *loki server*:
Have you ever done a drawing and accidently spilled water on it? Or maybe your paper just ended up too wonky from painting too much? Well I have the way to fix that!
Now if you spilled water or juice or something and messed up the coloring or the drawing itself...well I can't help you there...but I do know how to make your paper go straight again after its gone all wobbly.
For this you'll need:
- The messed up drawing. It has to have already dried. Do NOT try this while the paper is still wet!
- about 4 to 6 spare sheets of thin paper from your printer
- spare fabric, enough to cover the drawing. A nice cotton shirt works well
- an iron
- a heavy book
Step 1: prep your iron so its nice and hot. While your waiting for it to get warm go to step 2.
Step 2: Lay two sheets of paper onto a flat surface. I used a notebook but a table or thick board works too...a cushioned ironing board will not work
Step 3: Lay your messed up drawing on top of the two sheets and then place another two sheets of paper over that.
Step 4: Lay your fabric over the papers and make sure that everything is even and smooth
Step 5: Take your iron and press over the entire area. The Fabric will soak up any condensation from the steam and the two sheets of paper over your drawing will protect it from further damage. Keep the iron on the spot for a few seconds...you can count to 5.
Step 6: After ironing the whole area, lay your heavy book on top of the fabric and papers. Do this immediately after you take the iron off the drawing
Step 7: Go get a cookie and enjoy it while you let the book sit for a minute.
Step 8: Take everything off and see how your drawings wonky shape from the water is gone! Ta-da~! all nice and flat again!
It may not end up perfect *mine didn't* but it will be a lot smoother than before. :3 I hope this helps people...I just tried doing this now and I never heard of this method before. I only heard of pressing it between books but not using an actual iron -3- I'd recommend testing it out on a practice sheet of paper first. I might make this into an actual tutorial and post it in my gallery later if it gets positive feedback *nod*
