encountering "flow" issues with sparkle ink - even with screen cleaning i'm not getting good flow on one side. odd because it seems to be happening mostly on one side.

what mesh would you use for something like this with sparkle ink? do people generally use different meshcounts when using sparkle?

unfortunately, i didn't keep the setup. perhaps my offcontact was irregular, but 20 prints and this kept happening.

tips for using sparkle ink?

thanks

I'd use an 81 mesh. Looks like you have a couple of possible issues. You may have different pressure with the left and right hand. Push, don't pull. Your off contact is not even across the screen, due to your platens not being level or because your screen is warped, or both. You need well tensioned mesh and yours could be too loose causing poor release from the shirt and inconsistent deposit.

uneven off contact and uneven pressure is most likely your problems. could be loose mesh but nowadays thats rarely a problem.
