Screen Printing Start-up :
Stretching the Screens

I stretched screens on six frames this afternoon and applied emulsion (Tuclo Japan diazo-type) on three screens when evening came. Putting emulsion has to be done in low light. I used a small flashlight, placed it on the table with the light directed towards the ceiling. That gave me a soft dim light enough for me to see what I was doing. Afterwards I stored the emulsified screens in the closet to protect it from bright light. ^_^
