Im in the process of printing a new poster. It has been disaster after disaster so far. I went to use an old screen which I had not used for a couple months.I had left the emulsion on it for too long and couldnt remove it so had to fork out for a new screen.
Cock up number two. The glass I was going to use for laying over the negative broke and cut a nice hole in the new screen losing tension and meaning Im limited in which area of the screen I can use.
So I persevered anyway. It was a nice sunny day yesterday so I thought i would take my printing to the streets. I tried exposing the screen naturally, leaving it out for 10-12 minutes but it was far too long. The screen was overexposed andnothing washed out, so its back to square on again.
How long does it take to expose using the sun?
How can I reclaim my old screen and is there a handy way of getting around a torn screen or do I restretch or even buy a new one?
