Re: [BKARTS] Kinky Paper



I recently had a framer salvage a piece for me by doing the same thing: I had stupidly done a colored pencil piece and used heavy pressure with the pencils, and the drawing paper I used had stretched in places as a result. (The moral of the story is for me to use much heavier paper for such work.)
I did not, however, have creases.
One thing that might be tried with the creased watercolor paper is to use some of that liquid paper that art supply places sell that is color-matched to various colors and brands of watercolor paper. I know you can get it for Arches, but I'm not sure about Fabriano. Then the art work would then have to be reworked over that. I'm not terribly familiar with those products, but I do know watercolorists who have used the stuff with good results for covering up boo-boos. It just might cover crease-scars as well.
Good luck!

The following was posted on CyberScribes by Jean Wilson a few days
ago. I am relaying it to you with her permission. She added that they lightly misted the back of the paper.


Good luck!

Something to remember in case you ever have a disaster involving paper:

A friend of mine had a work in progress on the heaviest watercolor
paper I have ever seen. Some moisture was introduced causing a section
to turn into corregated board. It looked like a disaster, but he took
it to a framer who does drymounting and they were able to press the
paper back to pure flatness without any damage to the paint. So, if you
ever need to flatten something that looks like it is beyond hope....try
the drymounting machine, without actually drymounting.
