    Good idea Donal on using those cutting boards to flatten. I gotta give that a try as I'm short one dry mounting press.

    Usually, I lay some white tulle on top of the fiber prints, with white paper towel underneath and IRON it with a clothes iron. Usually about 15 minutes and it's as dry as a bone!. And, FLAT too!

    Sounds good, and I&#39;m gonna try it. I absolutely HATE when it curls and then riffles when I try to mount it. The hair dryer works, but does nothing to get rid of curl.

    Though I have never tried this method of drying FP paper myself, here it is: take two prints, squeegee them, put them back to back and hang them on the clothes line to dry.
    Digital is best taken with a grain of silver.

    Fiber base prints:

    Drum dryer for 13 minues - face away from chrome

    Seal press for 2 minutes - no pressure - 200F between blotter sheets that were pre heated.

    Between 2 sheets of Glass for a minute

    Nice and flat for a while.

    Mount to 4 ply

    Flat forever
    My photos are always without all that distracting color ...
