|My first successful photo emulsion silk screen.|
I love printmaking, and silkscreening is just another process to create a print, I have done tons of stencile screens but never a photo emulsion.
I had a lot of difficulty along the way. I struggled with screens not washing out, and when they finally did wash out the whole screen started to wash out, not just the image.
After struggling quite a bit and then doing more research and watching a bunch of videos I figured it out. My positive image that was printing on a piece of clear acetate (aka film) was not dark enough.
I'm really excited to move forward with this process. I have a bunch of images I've been working on and am ready to dive right in!
It was amazing at how fast my screen rinsed out when I finally had all the right components. I did a happy dance.Here is the video that finally lead me to my fix on my photo emulsion problem.
