    Default my first silkscreen

    ... was a total disaster. my emulsion dried to the box and paper stuck to it. then, i thought i could save it and tried to expose it anyway. i came back an hour later only to realize that i put my positives on wrong so all the type was backwards. fuck.

    ill post some pictures of me crying and punching the wall later on.

    if you learned something, it wasn't a total loss.

    Sounds like a total loss to me if the lesson was FOLLOW THE FUCKING DIRECTIONS. Cause I learned that one in like kindergarten.

    keep at it sean.
    I did it and evrybody here has had there share of bad screen printing moments. It looks easy when you see somebody doing it. There are alot of little things that are just done through time and experiance.
    If you need any help just PM me and I'll help any way I can

    Agreed, you'll get good at coating screens and reclaim, I got that down early and it was due to all my initial errors. Keep at it.
