Hi pandaz! That picture is just perfect!

I actually made a queston topic to the discussion board, how to achieve such a detailed picture and used your picture post as an example. I hope you don't mind Smiley

Not at all! Thank you Smiley

Wow, the half tones came out really great!  Did you use a 110 screen?  What kind of emulsion?

yup, 110! and i really couldn't tell you what kind of emulsion, sorry. It was what was provided for us from the university. it came in a pink bucket, if that helps haha. I would check for you as well, but I'm not in that class anymore, sorry!

i tried last night and it worked!!!! SO excited. I didnt have the string perfectly level around and had some cracking, but i was just testing.

I used yarn left over from the previous times that were still tied, and i lit them up once before so it looks like you can reuse a few times.

For those of you who it didnt work for, let it burn for at least 20-30 seconds (count SLOWLY) and then quickly dunk it in ice water (as cold as you can get it) I think my fallbacks were that i got antsy/nervous and didnt let it burn long enough.

Also, i tied yarn around the bottle, slipped it off and then soaked it in the rubbing alcohol for a bit and left it as wet as i could without it dripping all over the place and slipped it back on. i figure the more alcohol, the longer it can burn = the better.

ill post when i have some good results!!! and the edge of the bottle didnt seem that sharp either.. cup ready?

i tried a while back with yarn and rubbing alcohol too and it didnt work :\ i dont know if maybe the yarn is too think? maybe my water wasnt cold enough? or i didnt let it burn long enough? im going to give it a try again this summer with some other types of string and well see what happens, after this school year i have PLENTY of bottles from my friends to use haha

Brilliant! Is it hard to get the paper in the bulbs without it getting all wonky?

its not too bad, you just have to try to clear as big of a hole as you can when your hollowing them out (bigger hole means you dont have to curl it as much, and any sharp parts poking out can scratch them) and then i just rolled it up gently and quickly slid it in, it stayed pretty curled, but then i took a pencil (or something else that will fit) and pressed it against the edge of the bulb opposite the way it was curled to  kind of bend it back? then they stayed pretty flat.

did that make sense? its kind of a weird concept to explain, I can try to make a visual if you like.
