    What emulsion did you use? Will it work with waterbased inks? Great to have an outside flash time of 30sec

    Got a question. I'm just starting out with silkscreening. Did my first one the image came out fine except for the two fish which had some fine lines. while rinsing it, all the fine lines washed away. Don't know if i used to much water or did not burn it in long enough or what. I saw the fish when first wetting it and all was looking good at first but then like i said above. Any advice would be appreciated.

    Thank you for not making dull ass screen printing videos! The question I have is kind of boring but haven't found any good videos online about this. What make/model/size of printer works well to print most film positives and what do you do if you want to make a poster size screen print properly in regards to making the film positives. I appreciate you guys bringing some life to screen printing vids. Peace!

    how long can you leave the design on the screen if you wanted to used it for another day later? Or its best to clean the screen after the job is done & redo the burn…(new to this, like the videos very helpful)

    Hey I have got a question. I was trying to burn my mesh screen, I did everything as you said in this tutorial but then in the end when I was trying to reveal the final image the emulsion was just washing out 😭 I don't know what did I wrong? I used the diazo by speedball photo emulsions kit. Does this products not work for your steps? Thanks a lot for your respond

    I have been a vinyl hobbyist and bought a ‘kit’ to expand into screen printing. I am so frackin’ nervous. I screwed up my first screen up by using waaaay too much fucking emulsion. It dripped during the drying process. Spent like, 45 minutes cleaning it off. Tried again, screen looks good, about to actually burn the image. So paranoid. I’ve watched so many videos with different techniques. Going bonkers.

    For my very first exposure I tried my Neewer 160 led photography light on 7 minutes at 10 inches away and it worked mint! I have a amazingly crisp image that screen printed perfect. I'm shocked this little thing worked only having like 9.6 watts. It's almost as bright as truck light bars.

    My simple cheap exposure box:
    Big white plastic storage bin $10 at Walmart Canada
    Large shadow box. (used for the glass,frame and black backing) Glass and frame fit perfectly over the bin. $20 on sale at Walmart
    Neewer 160 led light $45 off Amazon.ca Cut a hole in the bin to operate power switch on light as it's battery operated. (light mounted on tiny tripod)
    After weeks of looking online I can't believe I never saw something as simple as this posted anywhere for homemade DIY projects. Only part I had to grab a tool for was to cut a hole in the box. You should do a video on this setup.
