    Default Printing With Latex Paint. I need advice.

    I just tried to print some posters with latex paint. A friend of mine told me that I just needed to add a few drops of glycerine to the paint to keep it from drying in the screen. Well, I tried and it dried in the screen after the first print and it took the immulsion off my screen.

    What am I doing wrong?

    Should I be using something other than glycerine to slow the drying process?

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Latex Retarder. Add it to the paint. I did it last week. No problems.
