> Can I pick your brain? I would LOVE to do photosilkscreening next year

> My question is how can I do a photo process using AP non-toxic

> K-8 school and would like to silkcreen with grades 7 and 8 and know
> they will LOVE it.

> Any suggestions? methods? Byulding a light box or way to expose the
> film? Any AP non-toxic emulsions anyone knows about? Thanks!!!!!
