Using 23x31-inch 305 mesh screen; Jacquard Water Based Ink; Ulano TZ emulsion (with exposure time of only 85-sec.); 80-lb cover-stock (French/speckletone); and a brand-new squeegee.
I knew the design would be tricky (http://pseudo-manitou.deviantart.com...ight-353621898), but those thin lines -- I can't get ink through them onto the paper. First print showed something faint, after that, nothing. The lines are 1-point thick, I'm pressing down HARD (I weigh 200-pounds) and getting no where, and even the 3-point thick lines are barely showing. I've thinned the inks time and again with water almost to the point of making it into soup, still no good. The large portions print fine (not sure how I'm not blowing out the screen, actually). -- Where am I going wrong? My only guess is the TZ is not washing away from the thin lines enough after I expose the screen, and may be clogging it.
