    This looks exactly like what I have.

    I've just ordered a half dozen screens, and am hoping the tool and frames I have are compatible. If not, I'll get your frame, tools etc.

    The ink I'll be using will be water based. I have speedball on hand right now, but may well explore other inks in the future.

    The main issue is with moire patterns.

    this can be mitigated with the angle choice on the bitmap conversion; I finally came up with 19 degrees for 75 lpi on a Ryonet 305 screen, using a cross...
  7. Yet another half tone question. re: photoshop and single point light source

    In reading about getting good half tone results, I see people disparaging the photoshop half tone filter.

    I assume that they are referring to the process that I have been using, which involves...

    I’ll look into the catalysts.

    If I weren’t using catalysts, from the partial cure/heat press answer, I’m guessing that a combination of 1) air dry 2) dryer on high, and then 3) heat press might...

    The reason that I'm thinking single point light source is that it has been suggested that with a bed full of lights, light may be coming in at an angle, thereby getting behind some of the smaller...
