I tried printing on some vellum last night. However, I'm not sure how to
dry it after clearing the print. I tried putting it face-down on some
glass, and smoothing it so that it was totally flat. I then "blotted" it by
placing some paper on top of it. After it had dried a bit, I taped it to
the glass using drafting tape so that it was perfectly flat. However, the
drafting tape started to unstick after a bit and the edges of the print got
crinklier . I then taped closer to the print image.
The end result is that if I place the print on a flat surface and try to
ensure it is flat, the edges are curled up (almost like a pudding bowl). If
I try to flatten the sides, the whole print buckles.
I am printing 5x4 negatives on vellum of around 10x8". I'd really
appreciate some tips on how to achieve a flat print.
