1  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Discussion and Questions / stiff-ness on: April 15, 2007 12:11:33 PM
ok, so I printed a white design on a light blue-ish shirt but it ended up stiff and un-bendy... did i just use too much ink or do I have to actually wash it for it to be soft and t-shirt esque?
2  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Discussion and Questions / emulsion problems... on: April 02, 2007 11:03:24 AM
Ok, so I've been reading up on all the other problems out there with emulsion, and I'm not sure if I have the same problem...? Alright, so I coated the front and back with emulsion in a dark room,m then let it dry overnight.  The next day I exposed the image for about 12 minutes, but when I go to rinse of the image...

1- The part that should be rinsing out just gets lighter, and the regular emulsion gets lighter too. 
2- Eventually i get frustrated and start rubbing it, which just takes EVERYTHING out.  Ahhhhh. I have absolutely no idea what I'm doing wrong.  Thanks in advance for all the lovely help I will hopefully be getting. Grin

Advice would be loved mucho.
