Help with emulsion exposure time.

Hey all,

So I was wondering if anyone has any experience with Sericrom? I'm still learning silk screening and I am having a few problems with exposure time. I have a 500w Halogen lamp which I use for exposure and I recently tried for 13 minutes at 18" above the screen and when I tried washing it out it wouldn't budge much which I am assuming is over exposure. So if anyone has anyone has any experience with the exposure times any advice would be much appreciated.

You are correct. If you can washout it is over exposure. If a image blows out then under exposure. If you reduce the time and the image blows out you might look into the films not being opaque enough. Tape a coin to the screen. If it washes out but not you image then film issues.

Wet the screen and keep wet for 30-90 secs then washout.
