Dear Craig et.al., I finally got some results--although I've not yet
tried to print the screen. I can see that I got the emulsion on way too
think in spots--I'm using Dick Blick emulsion--I'm sure it's
a clone of Speedball. I'll get that next time. I exposed for 11
min. and it worked fine--I have all kinds of tiny lines and they
seem to have cleared, but then, i havent tried to print--I had
green stuff coming out and entering the cut screen in places
and I really had a hard time getting rid of it. That's why I
think it was too thick. How durable is this kind of screen?? What
do you use if you want a fairly permanent screen that you can take
out and use occasionally for perhaps 15 shirts or so??
I worry that the green stuff seemed to be able to be washed out.
When you print a run, dosn't the stuff get soluable and start
washing out again??? Sid
