I agree with the heating method. I had a student one year, born in Nigeria
who went to school in England before coming to Rosedale. She showed me how
in English schools they heated the Linoleum on a warming plate prior to
carving.
We now lay our Linoleum on the radiator vents prior to carving. It
really makes
the carving easier and I suspect it would help flatten as well, but we
buy ours
in flat sheets. Good luck, Woody in KC

We use a warming plate here too, although an iron (clothes type) applied to
the cloth side until the warmth can be felt on the lino side works just as
well.
