That looks similar to another person's screenprinted shirts...

How do you upon doing that because it gives you more detail so it looks?

Nothing beats going to Denny's at 10 pm with Becoming The Archetype and sharing a milkshake with Seth. Nope, nothing.

well i use the flood light that burns the image directly to the screen so it is the exact same as whatever stencil i wanted to use was.

how did you dipose of the photoemulsion when you took it off the screen? it's highly toxic and i'm not sure of a safe way to handle it in my home.

I've been using the photoemulsion method for the last 9 months or so and it's been just fine in terms of technique and disposal.  I was extremely lucky enough to come-up on a light box from a family friend. It's great!  It's got about 8 black light tubes in it, about 20" long each and they're all wired to a plug.  Tape my transparency with the image to the treated screen, slip it under the elevated box (about a foot and a half) and let it bake for about 4 minutes and wash.  Save's about an hour from florescent or incandescent setting, right?

If anyone wants to see my stuff I've sort of started my little on-line business at http://www.xanga.com/likemindedpeople

Nothing like photo emulsion to get the detail.  But I'm curious about what other methods folks out here are using...
