i did dry it, in complete darkness the entire time( a week). is it possible to actually let it burn for too long?  has anyone ever used a 200 watt bulb? if so, what length of time worked best? i used a very thin layer of emulsion b/c i felt last time that i used too much. also, do you think that maybe i just let it sit too long, so the entire screen was so dry that now none will come off?
uuuuuugh so frustrating.

The screen never gets "too dry," but sitting around for a week might slowly expose it to light seeping into it storage space. A 200 watt bulb might or might not need that much exposure time, but from what you described, it sounds like you made a mistake I've made a couple of times. It's a good idea to blow out the screen in indirect light... like a darkened room lit by a light in another room through a door.

It's not that I'm scared of the emulsion - it's just that I can't afford to have a new screen for every design I want to do at the moment...


Also, you don't need to use the 'silk screen' material (also known as polyester organdy) which runs $16-$24 a yard.  You can use similar polyester fabric, used for sheer curtains, that can be found in the interior design section of the fabric store for only $5-8 a yard.  It is better for the environment (not using gallons and gallons of water with bleach) and saves elbow grease from 20-35 minutes of scrubbing out the design.
