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.
