I Need To Burn A Screen In An Emergency To Make A Shirt For A Birthday Present The Birthday Is 2Morw...I Switched Up The Emulsion I Use I Now Use Ulano Qxt It'S Supposed To Be Better I Was Using Photo Film Emulsion At First( Im Pretty New At This) And I Only Have A 100 Watt Light Bulbs...Can I Still Burn The Image On The Screen With The Regular Household Light Bulbs?? Please Help I Need To Make The Shirt Tonight!

Screen printing photo emulsion is really meant to be exposed by a UV lamp. I don't know how well a house bulb will work, but my instinct tells me, not very well.

If I were you I would do a test sample first before you put a lot of work into it. Burn a small rectangle into the corner of your screen and see how well the emulsion fixes. I'm sure at the very least, if it does work, the amount of time for the exposure will change because of the light difference. You may have to do a little more experimentation to work out the time conversion from a PE lamp to a 100 watt bulb.

Effective, Not Too Costly Way To Screen Print?
It'S Been Many Long Years Since I Last Screen Printed, But I Have These Designs That I Want To Print On Clothing, Can Some One Give Me A Basic Walk Through The Steps Please?

Hey Kara,

Build the screen frame. stretch the silk screen. Put the design film on to the screen. (for one of one-to-many colors), then squegee the paint onto the T-shirt (or poster, etc).
