    What is the best ink to use in this heat and humitity? Does anyone else have problems with there water-based inks drying in your screens? What is your solution?

    Use airbrush cleaner. Spray it into your stencil before you print. It totally helps keep the ink from drying in the stencil. Also putting a heavy layer of ink over the image area when you flood is helpful.

    I have more of a problem with this humidity. Paper warps like crazy.

    I was spraying water on my screen like crazy and it did no good. I think I am going to have to switch to the stinky stuff.

    it's probably just extra bad right now because of this extra nasty humidity.
