    You could try hanging it up and using steam or even just misting it with water and letting it dry.
    If you think the paint can handle it, you could soak it and put it in a dryer, then hang it up before it has a chance to get wrinkly again.

    For my muslin, when I set up a shoot, I hang it first and spray it Downy Wrinkle Releaser and let it dry while I set up everything else. Not perfect results and I don't know how it would work on paint, but it's "good enough" for my plain white backdrop.
