Is it because I have a waffly nose?

« on: April 21, 2008 02:10:58 PM »

and I've applied my emulsion to the screen and left it to dry in a dark room. I have my stencil all ready to go (on acetate), but now I'm wondering about the burning process.

The Speedball instructions say to use a 150w light bulb or a BBA 1 photo bulb.

The high-tech store that I went to sells loads of lightbulbs, but only went up to 100w!

If I were to get a 150w bulb, can they be put into normal light fittings? (ie that hang down from the ceilings of houses)

Also, would it be possilbe to use a daylight bulb, and if anyone has any experience in doing this, what sort of exposure times did you have?

Thank you in advance for any help Cheesy

P.S I live in the U.K, if it makes a difference!!

I asked on livejournal

It seems you can use any fixture for the bulb, as long as the fixture is not rated for a bulb with a lower wattage.. Hope that makes sense  Smiley Because you know the bulb required for screen printing has a high wattage.. 150 w
I am also going through a similar issue myself

I used a 60w bulb ... not even halogen and it worked for me ... I left it for an hour and 20 mins!
