When I create a watercolor painting, sometimes the paper buckles and warps, depending how much water I use in the painting. This post shows how I flatten those warped paintings.
I use watercolor paint on non-watercolor paper, too, and run into the same problem of warped paper. This flattening process also works on non-watercolor paper. Just make sure to not use too much water when you spritz. Watercolor paper is thicker, and can handle more water. But spritz a thinner paper too much and the water will bleed through to the front of the painting. And now, I’ll get back to painting:)
