First, I know QFX isn't rated for water-based, but then again half the shit we use for screenprinting isn't made for that purpose anyway. lol
Here's the deal: A friend of mine just gave me a gallon of QFX and I'd like to put it to good use. I run a totally water-based studio, and since I'm printing art pieces, most of my print runs are one-offs or runs of 20 pieces at the most.
If I set the burned stencil out in the sun to harden it up a bit before printing, how long will I have before it starts to break down if printing with water-based inks (if at all)?
Anyone with any experience here?
