Hi,
I have a question , I made an A3 size pastel painting and sprayed it lightly. However I was a bit late to take the masking tape off. Paper lost its shape because of the moisture. It is slightly bumpy in the middle because the parts under the masking tape did not get the same moisture. Do you think it would recover if I spray all the back of paper or do you have a better idea? I put so much effort into the painting I will be sad if I lose it.

I could assume you might be able to iron it out.
But not the old fashioned way.  A good framer would have a heat press.
Perhaps Dennis might chirp in to let us know his remedy.

 :thankyou: Robin, Ironing with little bit of steam could work, I sprayed the back of it and it is a little bit better.

Another concern is, if we make an A2 size painting, spraying may be dangerous because it takes time to take the tape off. (I sprayed very lightly)
