These simple instructions will allow you to remove the stretched painting Gator Board and leave without onboard injury:
Make sure the painting is bone dry first.
Look around the band that if you find an area where you can have a small lift / airspace in the area where the tape meets the watercolor paper? I use a kitchen knife to have a strong, thin blade. Carrying a knife at an angle, to ensure you do not pierce the board too – easily pierce a small hole, then gently slide the knife under the watercolor paper. It must be ensured a knife held flat to the board as possible so you do not disturb the surface of the board – of course.
After the point below the blade in the water / paper – simply slide a knife around the edges of watercolor paper (I like to hold the knife reasonably low and flat to the board It's like opening an envelope. .! an envelope with a knife

When Brown rubber Tape

Because I can not speak to the number of brown gummed tapes available – I suggest you cut the ribbon on the white margin around the edge of the painting.
How to Remove the tape from the Gator Board
the remaining band of course, continue to the Gator Board. He discarded the Chamber Gator in the bathroom on the tape side down on the board. It was allowed ten minutes or so, and then simply pulling off the tape to the last. Sometimes there may be a blunt knife to a stubborn piece of off – but it usually comes down without any effort at all.
