Let's say, htpothetically, I just double coated an 10 x 13 screen with speedball diazo photo emulsion - how long would I expect to wait on it to dry, hypothetically speaking?
this is what you should doOriginally Posted by DenisMutter
if you applied it thin enough it shouldnt take that long at all
Um, about that...
I think it's applied REALLY thick.
It was kinda dark, even with the photo safe red light, and i wasn't sure if my idea of a "thin bead" was the same as theirs.
Oh - hypothetically speaking.
I mean, my friend was coating this screen and that all was him.
that speedball diazo emulsion you can apply pretty thin and still get a good stencil. i use one of those 50 cent plastic putty knives from the hardware store instead of a fancy schmancy scoop coater. just make sure you get a nice consistent coat on the front and back.
also, i dont' really use a photo safe light when applying my emulsion. i just use a normal bulb of low wattage (60 or less), and just do it quickly. then leave the fuckers in the dark to dry.
anyway, yeah i think you should be able to burn tonite. just give it a few hours with a fan. at least give it as long as you can. and definitely test the hell out of the stencil once you wash it out. might get blurry.
