    Default Diazo Drying Time?

    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?

    HHmmm, hypothetically, that would mean we have no chance in HELL of exposing it tonite, huh?

    Hypothetically, thanks, BTW.

    How about I check it in 23 hours.

    Why was I thinking it be a lot faster?

    I gues 'cause I've never done this before...

    And all the instructions say is "Let Dry".

    That's really helpful.

    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.
