Hi there,

Is it possible do this:

1) Use emulsion on screen,
2) Print out a picture portrait with a threshold onto clear acetate using inkjet acetate paper.
3) Placing the print out onto the emulsified screen.
4) Turning 150W lamp on from about 18" away.

When I take off the Clear Printed Acetate (around 150-300 GSM) will I see my photograph after I wash the screen?

I have no room for tests, very low budget :p

Thanks!

No, this won't work. Photographs must be converted to halftones for exposure on screens.
So printing this: [media]http://www.ericsunlee.com/images/IP/girlface_threshold.jpg[/media]
on CLEAR acetate and placing on a screen wont work?

Baring in mind its only 1 solid black colour with transparent background.

Oh sure, that'd work. No different from any other kind of screen positive really. You need the print on the film to be as opaque as possible though.
