Screen Preparation

The photo emulsion method of screen printing is perhaps the most exciting method created! It makes fine line drawings, computer generated images, various hand and commercial lettering and photographic half-tone positives.

The photo emulsion method requires:
  1. A screen prepared with the photo emulsion/sensitizer mixture
  2. A film positive or a printed transparency film
  3. A light source (Speedball recommends a BBA #1 photo flood) that will transfer the opaque images on your positive to the light-sensitive printing screen

Another method of screen preparation is the use of screen drawing fluid together with screen filler. Apply screen drawing fluid with a brush, allow fluid to dry, then coat the screen with Screen Filler. When dry, the drawing fluid can be washed out, allowing the drawn image to be printed.
