    Removing "dent" in fiber print

    Hi All,

    I was hinge mounting a print last night (only my 3rd time) and some of the glue from the tape ended up on my print. I was able to remove the glue (rice or wheat paste I think) with lots of Q-tips and distilled water, but what remains is a "dent" or "bubble" about the size of my thumb-nail on the print.

    Is there anyway to flatten this? I have a mounting press, but I was afraid to apply heat in case I made it worse, like a crease. Any suggestions?

    Blessings, Krystyna

    Perhaps, you should try to rewash the whole print?

    Good Evening, Krystyna,

    Is this FB paper?? If so, I'd follow Suzanne's advice and then flatten the print in the mounting press. I doubt if the press heat would exacerbate the problem.

    Thanks for your replies!

    Thank you both for your good advice! I think that will do the trick!

    It's amazing working with fiber paper, it cleaned up nice after the accident, and hopefully will regain its form after another wash.

    Blessings, K
