Interesting indeed. After we finish painting projects in my middle school,
I have students "iron" the back of their paintings to flatten them out for
framing. Very few, if any, have EVER used an iron before and have no clue.
Now....how hard could it be, pray tell. They do seem to get a thrill out of
this exercise, though. It's, "Way cool, Mrs. Kramer." Toodles......
