We have a large litho on medium weight watercolor paper that has been floated with paste and paper hinges. Evidently, a little too much water was used in the hinging process and there is a slight warp in the art paper. It's not very noticable, but the customer wants to know if there's anything that can be done to flatten the art again.

This is a bit out of my league... so I'd appreciate any suggestions.

Thanks
 
Just thought I'd shoot this back up to the top again, in case anyone has any ideas.

Thanks

A paper conservator?
 
Yes, to what has been suggested. Hinging is always
potentially problematical and desiccated blotters
and micro or macro dot paste application are one's
best friends, here. More information on the use of
these can be found the pictureframingmagazine.com

hinging.
