I had a few questions concerning the light bulb I purchased to try the photo emulsion method of silk screening.
I got a Speedball Silk screening kit for Christmas, and it recommended a BBA No. 1 Photoflood... which doesn't make much sense to me, but I assumed it was a 250W Photo bulb.
So, I purchased a General Electric 250W 4800 Kelvin Photoflood Lightbulb. I was told by the gentleman at McBain Camera that this is the coolest burning photoflood that they sell. However, the light bulb is blue, and I was wondering if that will affect the exposure time at all?
The caution on the back of the lightbulb also scared me, it states that I should keep myself, and all articles at least 4 feet away from the lightbulb whenever it's turned on. But my kit tells me to hang the light 1-2 feet above my screen. Do all photoflood bulbs have warnings like this?
Thank you in advance for any advise you can lend me.
