Hi, I'm new here and relieved to find a world where everyone has exposure trials. My question is what is the best possible exposure for Chromablue Photopolymer?
I just switched from Speedball that I was exposing with three 250 watt worklights for 25 min. (Results: just a different shade of green ghost image)...to Chromablue Photopolymer with just 500 watts on for 20 min. (Results: absolutely nothing) :(. I now have on order two 40 watt black lights to replace the worklights for my 10th attempt. While they're on their way can anyone share their expertise before I walk into another blind experiment? I'm willing to use sunlight in the mean time but I've already read the photopolymer is tempermental in the sun....

Emulsion is UV sensitive, Blue light black or white is the best as far as UV. if you only have two bulbs I don't think your getting the light to the whole film or screen. We have a Lawson exposure unit and it has at least 10 bulbs. We expose about 5 to 10 min.
