Hi, my name is Cherish Flieder, designer of, and today I want to show you how to get wrinkles out of paper before framing. So to begin, what you need is your iron and ironing board of course, your wrinkled piece of paper. I use just a little spray water and most importantly, a piece of clean paper that you can fold your wrinkled piece of paper into to protect it from the ironing process. So we're going to actually iron out these wrinkles. So to begin, I'm going to put my piece of paper face down because I don't want anything to happen to it and we're pretty much going to be steaming it. So unfold this over to create a little bit of a barrier because this is a watercolor painting and I don't want anything to happen to it. So from here, I'm just going to slightly mist the paper. This is not too much, just to give it a little bit of steam and then using a cotton setting or even a little bit less, I'm just going to slowly go down and begin to work out some of these wrinkles. Now you can't really see what your progress right here, but, so the most important thing is to keep your pressure even and firm as you move across the piece of paper. Alright, so let's see how we're doing here. I'm going to go ahead and open this back up and you'll notice it's completely flat. So this will look beautiful now when I get a little bit of a frame and matte on it, it will look great on the wall. I'm Cherish. I hope you learned some wonderful techniques about how to use an iron to get wrinkles out of a piece of paper or a piece of art before framing. I hope you go make the most out of life and make it something to cherish.
