    Not really you've most liikely change the properties of the materials. Best way to flatten paper that is crumpled is use an iron. Try the same with your tracing paper. It isn't perfect but it stops it being crumpled and messy. It's just wrinkled and flat

    lol Twigman.

    BrandX - irons/heat make tracing paper bubble!!!

    5cupa - stains aren't really visible, more the crinkles the prob.

    It was some plans, got a photo copy anyway, but is best to ammend on the original. Not mine though!

    thanks

    Washing machine with a bit of vanish 2 in 1 - gets stains out of anything! even ironed on beetroot! (Why anyone would iron beetroot on in the first place - your guess is as good as mine).

    all to scale, wrinkles provide too much paper displacement for overlay - it's not mine, someone elses, think they'll be tracing over the photocopy. wondering just for sake of wondering!

    Trace a new one, then laminate it, then coffee will just wipe off

    what about stretching it over a balloon then wetting with gin (counter stimulant with depressant) should get the wrinkles out

    alternatively, get really trashed before trying to trace it - you won't even notice the wrinkles then (or so my dodgy mates say!)

    Actually wetting it is probably a good idea, then put it on a flat surface somewhere warm (like a central-heating boiler top), put a towel on top and a book or something to hold it flat
