Great prints start with great screens!

Great prints start with great screens!

 Here are a few tips to improve your darkroom process:

1. LED exposure is the new standard. It exposes faster and creates a better stencil. Upgrade to LED bulbs for your exposure setup.
2. A scoop coater has a round edge and a sharp edge. The round edge lets more emulsion onto the screen. For thicker stencils, use the round edge. For a thinner stencil, use the sharp edge when coating a screen.
3. Struggling to expose detail? Use a diazo-mixed emulsion, like @baselayr Long Lasting. It's forgiving on less-than-ideal darkrooms and creates a great screen.
