So I just started out printing on paper (well printing in general) and first off...I should have done my research before spending upwards of $200 on speedball products...it's what I used as a teen (all I had available) and when deciding I had some time and money to burn it's what I went to thinking it was the standard...now I see pretty much everyone hates on the stuff...oh well, once it's gone I'll start replacing with proper materials Buuuut, on to my question.
I have a 10x14" screen i developed under a 500w light at 16" for 18 minutes and used a smaller piece of glass from a cheap photo frame to hold my film positive down, all worked great, the image burned as planned except for a small very thin line around the glass also blocked the light. I thought eh what the hell, covered it with screen filler fluid and went on printing my christmas cards...which turned out pretty awesome (albeit a little warholish due to learners mistakes in registration hahahaha...I'm going to say it's artistic uniqueness hahaha). Finished printing, cleaned my ink, applied my speedball emulsion remover and all came out nicely except for the hairline that the glass blocked. I ran some speedball speedcleaner over it...no luck. More emulsion remover, still nothing.
There is also one other spot of fine detail where the ink or emulsion seems to have gotten stuck (its in the actual print area, in an area of ghosting)...is this screen lost or can I somehow get it clean? I do not have a power washer and pretty much do all my cleaning in the kitchen sink...
Thanks...and this place is awesome!!
