OK so of course right when you need everything to go right.......
I used acid to get the emulsion off.
I then used a ghost image remover to clean 'er up real nice like.
I then Degreased, Once, and tehn felt to make sure tehre was no dirt, and then Again!
I put the emusion on the screens, and it was Patchy. Real patchy.
Unusable.
So im wondering what i did wrong?
I hadn't stirred the emulsion in a while.........
I hadnt mixed up new Degreaser in a while...........It was the bottom of my bottle....
Any Ideas Gals and Guys?
Thanks

Obviously it could be quite a few different things, and someone with more experience might be more confident about what it was this time in particular, but...

I can tell you that not stirring the emulsion can cause extremely patchy results, especially if it hasn't been stirred "in a while". When I've used emulsion I should-have-but-didn't stir it has a sandy texture once the screen is dried (and didn't seem any different when applied).

I personally wouldn't have put it down to the degreaser, but I'm new to printing so take that with a grain of salt.
