Ive been using LX660 for a while now, and its been good, but recently Ive been doing finer line and halftone work and I notice that the emulsion is not strong when its wet. When I wash a screen after a run, i notice that the details like the halftone dots and fine lines are peeling off. Now, I usually expose the screens, hose them down and then leave them out in the sun to dry. but in the winter, especially this winter, I cant. so they remain in my freezing cold shop to dry. could that have anything to do with it? also, any suggestions on a better emulsion for water based ink printing?
Ive been hearing that Ulano 925WR is the best stuff, and has been for 40 years. problem is, where can you get it in quarts.
still hoping that someone else has some other suggestion for water resistant emulsions...
We use Ulano 925WR, and it's great for our weird exposure methods, but I'm really curious about the Murakami. I've only ever used Ulano emulsions...is there anything I'd need to know about switching to the varsity-level stuff?
Curious about Murakami as well, though I use (even weirder) sun exposure methods so I've been wary of switching. I use TZ now because I can pick it up locally, but 925WR is also super awesome for that.
(does it change color, because that's the pretty central thing to my methods)
