Making films for screenprinting yourself

I make a photocopy at the local shop on normal paper like 80gr

I coat the paper with a brush and some vegetable oil on a light table

the paper is getting translucent , not transparent . Still the light is geting through . You will need  to burn your screen a bit longer . In my case with a transparent it takes 10 minutes with this technique it takes 16 minutes .

Make sure you brushed the paper everywhere

Clean up the oil from the light table .

Put your films on a sheet of paper and put some more on top and let it suck the oil over night .



That's the emulsion i use . i dont know what are the insolation time for another brand .

I use two HPR 125 watts lights 80cm from the glass 

Tape your film to your screen . Put it on your insolation set up . Put a black sheet on top to avoid the light to bounce back .  A piece of foam that fit inside the screen and some weight on top to push the mesh against the films in order to get all the details  . Put the light on for 16minutes and rince the screen

Done
