Hi everyone! Long time/no see!
So, I recently upgraded my black ink from Speedball to TW, and man does it rule! Drys nice and semi-shiny, opaque and thin. It looks real professional to my eyes. There are, however, some issues:
Drying Time: man, does it take forever! I'm used to hanging up about 25 posters, then start stacking them. We had TONS of posters stick together because the seemingly dry TW black layer was NOT. How long does it take? Do I need a drying rack to use this stuff?
"Mountains": So, at first the TW was going on real nice and thin. About half way through the run the screen was starting to act tacky, sticking to the paper and stuff, and the ink being laid down as thick, with sort of mountains of ink in places. Like ridges of ink. I assumed as it dried, the ink would settle down but no, it dried in big mountainous clumps in places. Should I of added a drop or two of water?
I'm getting ready to do a bunch of fine-art prints that are just black-on-white, so I need to get this shit down!
