    Default white mesh vs. yellow

    should yellow burn longer or shorter than white...

    I had to switch emulsions kinda on thefly and I didn't have time to do a test strip.

    My white screens burned fine but my yellow one burned for the same amount of time wouldn't blow out completely. Kinda cloudy and fine lines are still clogged.

    Is it over exposed or under?

    but from what you're saying,
    it sounds like they are overexposed.

    What emulsion did you switch from/to?

    I'm not familiar with those, but,
    like I say, it sounds like over-exposure.
    Did you abrade the screens?

    Is the yellow a higher mesh count?

    my yellow screen is a high mesh count than my white screens, and i kinda had this prob too. i had over exposed with my yellow. I coated and exposed again for about 15 sec shorter time (that's probably variable), and it came out fine...

    burn yellow a 1/4 -1/3 longer than white.

    Yellow is said to hold finer detail than undyed.

    Yeah what they said, burn approx. 1/3 longer than white. Yellow reduces light bounce, produces sharper stencils when doing halftones, finelines, etc.

    But that is weird it didn't wash out.

    After a second attempt at 20am ... I've decide that the toner on the postitve wasn't black enough to block the light completely. So that's part of it. I got the timing right on the second try though.

    Thanks everyone.
