Re: [BKARTS] Un-warping foamcore board



It also helps to "counter-mount"- even more than pasting two sides.  If possible one wants to counter-mount with a material that has the appropriate expansion/contraction characteristics.  For example- on a book board one would want to counter-mount with a combination of lining paper and pastedown that would give just the desired amount of inward warp.  When photographers have large b&w photos "wet mounted" the back lining is very important for a flat finished product.  Just pasting the other side will not cut it.
