Seen that before, usually happens due to these things:

• Old emulsion- Old emulsion is really thick and goopy. Your emulsion should be a smooth consistency and should be easy to stir. If it's clumpy, sticky, or has started to separate, it's time to get some new emulsion.

• Proper degreasing/cleaning of the screens- Use a good degreaser like Simple Green, or Greased Lighting (both are available at hardware/grocery stores/WalMart, etc..) on both sides of the screens and let them dry squeegee side down while laying flat. At this stage, it's very important to keep them clean and free of dust/dirt.

• Don't forget the basics- even though you already know how to coat your screens, it always helps to refresh your memory with a review of proper practices. Here is a great link to proper coating methods
