Hey everyone, I'm a close-up magician primarily and I have a few close-up pads for practice/performing. I ordered a large black one (not from Penguin Magic, however, I feel ashamed
) about 24 x 13 or so. About 3 days after receiving it, it's all wrinkled and pretty much unworkable. I have tried ironing it with a thin towel on top, that seemed to have worked for 5 minutes before becoming an unholy wrinkle-fest again. So... I have now given it to my cats to sleep on, as that's about as useful as it can be at the moment.
Currently, I am using a very old, bright red 16 x 11 close-up pad that is VERY nice in quality, but is just too small for my Cups and Balls routine, or doing some nice ribbon spreads. I bought the Professional Green Close-Up Pad VDF from Penguin here, hoping that it just as good as my small red pad. I know, I know, I'm rambling on; here's what I want to know.
What are some tips on keeping my new VDF pad in good condition with no tearing, slipping and ESPECIALLY wrinkling, as the surface of the other one is completely worthless now. Any tips would be nice!
