Screen printing, Coating the Mesh

If you decided that you want to use a film positive baked on your Mesh then, this is what you need to do:
-Firstly, get a friend to help you.

-Get your mesh, make sure it is clean and dry.

-Following from that, get the Scooper.

-Put some PhotoSensitive emulsion on the scooper. Spread the emulsion equally within the scooper. Making sure both corners are covered in it. Dont put to much or to little.

-When that is done, get your friend to hold the mesh by their feets.

-Having the wood coming out, side facing you.

-When your ready, use both hands holding the scooper.

-Start at the bottom, make the scooper touch the mesh.

-Make the scooper lean forward so the emulsion floods the part, its touching the mesh.

-When that bit is ready, steadly and firm, push the scooper upwards.

-When you reach the top, make the scooper lean back.

-So all the remaining emulsion can go back into the scooper and doesn't trip down the mesh(as that would destroy it).

-when all the remaining emulsion is back on the scooper, slowly take the scooper off the mesh.

-You now should have a fully covered, smooth mesh (If you have missed a part within the mesh, such as a sudden gap in the middle, do another coating).

-Now put the mesh within a dark room, so no light can get to it.

-Finally, clean up! Your mesh will be ready to use within 24 hours.
