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.

Re: 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. image link reference

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. image link reference

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