Hello, It’s me again.
I have made my first screen printing screen and exposed it in order to test it under day light. Success! However, I was impatient and I didn’t let the emulsion dry for quite long enough (less than a day). Anyway. I’m ready to make new frames but wondered if I could coat them in emulsion tonight/ tomorrow or not as I won’t be home again until Sunday afternoon. My question is, can you leave emulsion to dry for longer than a couple of days or does it effect the result?
I dry them in a box in a dark cupboard in my desk, so they would be in complete darkness and it’s quite a cold room unless the heater is on for hours. Do you think they’d be ok to leave for that many days or would you recommend leaving the emulsion until a week that I can attend to them once they’ve dried?
As it’s so expensive I don’t want to waste any.
