Step 5: Pull Iron Up and Check for Wet Spots
Pull the iron up, keeping it parallel to the ironing surface.
If your velvet sticks to the iron, then the iron setting is too high for the type of velvet you have. Adjust.
If you see any wet spots through the velvet, lightly set the iron down again to dry it out. Wet spots can dry into 'shiny' spots that reflect light and detract from the impact of the image on a cleaner field of velvet.
