    pour oil on it, and rub it in vigorously, but still kind of gently...i guess, just like your momma. exposure times will be different than plain ol transparencies. or, you can print it out on a bunch of transparencies and tape em together like The Fresh Prints said, and burn a little longer to get rid of tape marks.

    I tried this for the first time since high school two posters ago it works perfectly for me. Might have to burn your screens a little longer.

    and with this method, you don't have to worry about shrinkage from it getting too hot.
