I'm a small operation with limited funds. That being said, my exposure unit will be a 500w lamp (http://www.amazon.com/Cooper-Lightin...9138191&sr=1-1), will this work?
Now on to emulsion--like I said, I plan doing some paper and textile projects. First, will I need two separate emulsions? Or is there a good general purpose emulsion for both. I've been looking at the Ulano CDF emulsion because of its ease and affordability (no need for scoop coater, etc.), but it says not to use water-based inks. The Ulano CDF will definitely work for my t-shirt projects, but how will it hold up when I do a paper run with some Speedball, water based, poster ink? Will it be that big of a deal? Can I at least get by for a short run? Also, how does the CDF work on high mesh count screens, like ~230?
Best supplier? I'm looking at One Stop Inc at the moment because they have a warehouse close by...
edit: With CDFs, do you need a special screen reclaiming solution??
