    Small world! My junior year at NIU I skipped out of class and drove 8.5 hours to catch a show at the Blue Note in Columbia.

    I keep up with Facebook stuff just because I'm trying to get my name out there, but none of the groups I'm a part of there have the vibe that this place used to have. Too many whiny collectors, not...

    I don't own an inkjet printer and my laser printer is a budget model that doesn't print smooth lines. And that means I have to go back to tiling films unless I buy a seriously expensive printer. I'd...

    I did find that the FedEx/Kinkos has a large format toner printer/copier so I got some new films. I dusted the printed layer with a clear fixative, but not that brand. Did another step test and I...

    I did cut paper for the larger fills, but the problem is that where the printer ink details are the light is getting through.

    Yes, oiled paper for all these things. Is that bad? I'm trying to save...

    Yeah, I started to do that. This is what the final image is supposed to be:

    And I did it again. I should have added 2:30 to 23 minutes. Still, 25:30 is a big difference from 32:30.

    I'm an idiot, but I have to head back to expose another screen to be sure how much of an idiot I am.

    During my step test above I moved the paper in 1-minute intervals and let Row 12 expose for 23...

    Well, I thought I fixed it. Much thanks for the additional coating tips. I'm still not getting good exposures with oiled paper and now I suspect that it's the density (or lack of) in the ink used...

    Ordered the QT-D emulsion. It's mixed and in my fridge now. Now I'm trying to get the humidity under control. I'm still only five months into trying to print for myself and as it gets warmer,...

    That's a crazy fast exposure to me. Is that with a transparency or oiled paper or what? With every setup I've had, this stuff seems to expose longer for me even over people that are using the same...

    New exposure unit. New problems.

    So a couple weeks back I built this makeshift unit that was an upgrade from my previous method.

    It's four 40watt black light fluorescent...

    1750 at the highest setting, but I've had some oops moments at less than that. Not sure what it should be. Just picked this one up because it was $50 on craigslist.

    Just growing pains so far. Breaking my glass by using too much heat and clamping it to the screen. Discovering my pressure washer is in fact strong enough to rip screens.

    New to me. What size are the panels you're producing? And you're going to print directly onto the transparency or the film? It looks like the film is a little less transparent to help diffuse the...

    You're welcome! As I was writing it up I worried that the specifics of the wiring diagram might trip people up or that other ballast diagrams would be radically different. After looking at the other...

    Here we see a pair of blue wires and a pair of red wire waiting to be connected to the sockets. Two holes were drilled through the panel for each socket. The holes need to be big enough for the 18...

    About a week ago I broke my makeshift exposure unit:

    I noticed that, too. I almost think that they had T5 bulbs and now don't because I don't remember that discrepancy when I first clicked on the link. Tomorrow I'm working on wiring up ballasts and...

    I've printed some stuff on their 80# cover stock and it seems okay, but I'm only using the rest of what I have and will get 100# from here on out. I only get French because I have to drive an hour or...

    Thank much. I'll try again. Should my distance be 1.5 times the diagonal of stencil size and should I do step tests for each different stencil size?

    I ended up getting some laminate from another store today that had some in stock in different sizes. When I got it to the car I noticed it had a weird texture that mimics the marbling color. I went...
