i also use textile dw emulsion.
i live in canada and i also mixed the yellow powder with tap water.
but i've seen people do that and works perfectly.
i use a speedball remover(diazo) and for me it doesnt work at all.
this remover works miracles with its own brand speedball emulsion diazo. but i asked and they said it was compatible.
i used bleach and it did amazing at removing most of the emulsion. now the screen has a hazy pinkish colour. its not as clear as..well a reclaimed screen but you can see my hand through it ( in a haze).
my emulsion was purple and now its brown (i was scared but it made sense when i thought of the mixing colours) the first one i did came out good although it was underexposed. and every try after that has been underexposed and with out luck of reclaiming my screen.
in the las try i tried exposing it with the sun even if it wasnt reclaaimed to see what happens when its "perfectly exposed" well it turns back to purple OR looks more purple then the brown you start with
when i saw that after i read a forum that it stated that your emulsion when fully exposed will change back to its normal colour when fully exposed i just died because it was a good news after many hopeless news .
i washed it out with bleach and it did better at it then before. :O another smile to my face
i guess its because its water-resistant and when its underexposed its even tougher to get out :S
now i have a very light haze..as i said before its ligh pinkish and you can see things in a haze.
buti tried putting ink through (with a Squeegee) and it only pases through some little parts that are fully emulsion free.
what can i do???? help please!! btw i have no money :S i know this is going to sound cheap and maybe unacceptable to some but please help me with easy solutions or substitutions if theres none its ok :'( haha
BTW: in my last try, when my emulsion turned more purple, i used the sun and it was a cloudy day (100%) and i stay there doing calculations and noticed how the emulsion started changing purplish after ten minutes
