    Default Emulsion Hardener

    does anyone use emulsion hardener after washing out a design? If so, how many coatings should I apply? parts of my screen melted after applying two coats of it.

    do you mean the sensitizer stuff that you mix into the emulsion to make it photosensitive? i would think putting that onto the screen would cause problems...not only is it pretty toxic (at least the ulano stuff i get), but it'll lock into the screen when it dries. i'd just expose it longer.

    I tried using it several years back when I was having emulsion problems- it turned out not to be the solution I was looking for. At ant rate it didn't seem to do anything.

    I could see it maybe being useful if you are deliberately underexposing your stencil for some reason, i.e., compensating for an inopaque positive, etc...

    if you're using light sensitive emulsion try just putting the shot screen outside in sunlight while the water drys. that should harden it also.
