I finally successfully shot a screen at home (yay), but am still having trouble getting fine images to come out okay.  I found that extra emulsion was coming off as I tried to rinse the screen (some scrubbing was found to be necessary).

Did it come off due to scrubbing too hard?  Was it another problem?  Anyone have good experience with fine images (like line drawings)?  Should I just give up?

when you wash the emulsion out after exposing it, a good trick i found was just to soak it either side quickly with the presser washer/ shower head wait for like 5 minutes then wash it properly, it comes away easily then. Id never scrub the emulsion you could quite easily damage your stencil.

I also find for thin lines you should use a screen with a higher mess count and only expose it for a short time. Although im not sure how youre exposing it... erm hope some of that is helpful  Smiley
