    Default I quit screenprinting today

    ...but I do that a lot.

    This morning, 7am, I was standing out in the rain trying to wash out a screen I had just (re)burned.

    The original? Yeah, I tried washing it out gently with a pressure washer. Just seeing what would happen. What happened was complete blow-out. Emulsion just went flying.

    Which brings me to today. Reburned the screen. Washout in the rain. Some areas just blew out completely, other areas barely opened up. The show is in two days; I'm screwed. AND... it's a benefit show. I can't really let them down.

    Sometimes my process is a breeze. Sometimes I fux everything up. Today is option 2.

    poop.
    Shizouka!

    Brg!
