    Some times when your emulsion its too old it also gives you problems like the under exposing results, even if you give it extra explosure time it will continue breaking out… emulsions have a expiration date or shelf life and some times stores will sell it any way to you… i had those issues when buying quarts of emulsion that came already prepared for use… idk if in the states sale it that way but in mexico they do and they just dont give a fuck ๐Ÿ˜‘

    Just this week I noticed after washing out my screens and hitting it with compressed air to remove any emulsion in the image area, some of the image would come loose and flop around. At first I thought it was a degreasing issue but turns out I just had to expose it longer. I have the entry-level Ryonet 8 bulb exposure unit and I guess it will be time to replace the bulbs soon. Cost me a lot of time and a lot of money on account of all the beer I had to drink to cope with the issue because it happened when I was swamped of course. Live and learn! Thanks for the vid!

    nice to have you back cam. Question 1, what emulsion do you use. I have the 80 watt version of your light and with my emulsion (ecotex crap) it took 7 minutes, the light is 14 inches away from the glass. I am guessing it is the emulsion i am using causing me problems with exposure times. at 7 minutes it still lost some small details on a 200mesh.

    Thanks Cam, yes that was very useful.

    PRINT LIFE..!!
    A tip: Make sure you run your exposure calculations across your different mesh counts. Your 180, 156, or 110 will tolerate a longer exposure time than your 230, 305, or 330 meshes with high detail or halftones which will require a shorter exposure time (Usually about 20-25 percent). Color of mesh, type of emulsion and their solid content, as well as the thickness of your stencil will also cause variations. Of course the quality of your film positive is of the upmost importance before a calculator will be an effective tool. For newbies a dual cure diazo emulsion will be the most forgiving. Anyway I be quiet now. Thanks Cameo..!!

    awesome video I had screen break down I use chroma blue emulsion and wasn't degreasing good enough but watching your video helped me out a lot, I have the 8 20watt uv bulb and burn for 7 min and have no break down at all. 1 question how long do you let the screen sit in the dip tank and is it just water that's in there cause when you wash out the screen it looks like it doesn't take long to wash out. Thank you

  25. Mr Fomiatti February 1, 2019

    Idea? If your image wont wash out properly, and your in a pickle' dilute some stripper on a rag and rub it lightly over the area, then gently wash out.
    Hope this helps. ๐Ÿšฌ

    Hey Cam I love your channel! I have a question. When starting out what mesh count do you recommend when picking screens?
