Default Just a Newbie Question.

Hello, I'm newbie and I'm trying to figured how to properly exposed and washed a halftone designed. BTW, I don't know if I'm in the right thread or not, just delete this if I'm not. Moving forward, I tried to expose my first design under the sun for about 10secs and it was perfectly fine. [URL="https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/520478524805611532/576718148972052491/60033860_2152793871423860_4345152498500108288_n.png"]image link reference[/URL]

But when I'm trying to use cmyk method (halftone), exposing the screen under the sun for 10secs and washed it away, few details has been washed away too. [URL="https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/520478524805611532/576719443699171338/59844750_2275558362658145_8472440448743374848_n.png"]image link reference[/URL]

Should I exposed the screen a little longer? By the way I'm just using plain paper with cooking oil to expose my design.

If your detail is washing away, then you are under exposing. It's hard to tell you how long you should be exposing, as the sun is pretty uncontrollable. haha

I figured out the problem, it's the color of the print in my plain paper. If i'm using halftone it will turn out gray and the details will wash away. But if I'm using pure black, the design in the screen is flawlessly washed away.

Stop Guessing! Buy a Step Wedge guide online or from your emulsion supplier (cost is under $20.00) and perform a Step Wedge Screen Exposure Test. A Step Wedge is easy to use (comes with instructions) and it will help determine proper exposure times. Speaking from 45+ years of industry experience, Good Luck!
