Default Watercolour paper is buckling

Does anyone have a suggestion for watercolour paper that 'buckles'. I embossed my stamped image and then used the heat gun. I don't think I heated it too long (yikes, maybe I did) and the paper distorted somewhat.

Thank you.

What kind of heat gun do you have? Maybe your gun is too hot or maybe you held it too close to the paper? I haven't had this happen. I use the Ranger Heat It tool when I emboss on watercolor paper.

Hi,

I have the Marvy Heat Tool. You know, I probably did hold it too close to the paper. I'll watch that in the future. Thank you.

What is the weight of your watercolor paper?

You might have oversaturated the paper with water. Also, what brand are you using? If it's genuine artist-grade watercolor paper, it should be evenly stretched before use to avoid warping. Sometimes you can get away without stretching the paper if very little water is used.

Try heating both sides of the paper next time and maybe that will help even it out.
