How to flatten a paint by numbers canvas?
Flattening a paint by numbers canvas is easy! The only thing you must remember is to not get it wet. The best way to flatten them is by ironing it. Do not use steam or water when ironing them. This can damage the print.
Another way is to put them up on a frame as stretched and tight as possible. Tight enough to smooth out the wrinkle but not too much that it distorts the print.
If neither works, lay the canvas face down on a clean surface, put a damp cloth over it, and iron it. Make sure the cloth is just damp and not soaked! Squeeze out all the excess water from the clothing before using it.
Once flattened, try not to roll, or fold them. Both can cause wrinkles and crease!
