    Default Runny Emulsion????????

    I've been having a rough time with my emulsion lately.
    I currently mixed a batch of speedball emulsion and it turned out really runny. I mixed the standard 1:4 ratio but it obviously didn't work.
    Has anyone else had this problem?

    andymac will tell you to ditch the speedball.

    Ditch the speedball? Hey, whatever works for you....some people like Molsons beer...

    Usually most emulsions with diazo, the thickness is pretty well set, you only mix up a bit of water with the diazo to allow it to spread through the stencil material evenly and thoroughly.

    Why would it be runny? Do you mix in other ingredients with speedball?

    lately, I've been trying a batch of Murikami 9800 dualcure and it is awesome - covers perfect, razor sharp edges and superfine detail, quick exposure, still works after nearly a year, reclaims easy. Resists water and solvent based inks $76 Canadian (about US$50)

    how would you compare it to TQX or autosol? will kiwo stencil remover work well with it?
    I've been having some problems with Autosol emulsion lately... same with TZ,
    that stuff seems to always crap out on me. I always heard people talk shit about TQX
    but it's been working fine for me. It doesn't give up as easily as autosol or TZ.
    That Murakami stuff sounds interesting though... reasonable price too.

    Andymac, where are you getting the Murakami 9800? I can only find 9500 for sale. The description on one page says that the 9800 is designed for solvent based inks. It works well with waterbased?
