EZArtScreenTM is a light-sensitive emulsion applied to a fine mesh
nylon screen for the purpose of making screen stencils. By exposing the
emulsion covered screen to daylight or fluorescent light,
the emulsion changes into a tough coating. |
Designs are printed as black images on a transparency. The design can be hand drawn with opaque
markers, or printed with an ink-jet printer. The transparency with design, together with EZArtScreen
film, is exposed to light: sunlight or florescent bulbs. The emulsion on the EZArtScreen film, under
the black areas, is burned from the light. The film is then placed in water to soften. After softening, the
emulsion (where the design is) rinses out.
Silkscreening with COLORHUE Dyes
This exposes the screen mesh. So when paint is applied, it
goes through the open areas of the screen.
The black image must be fully opaque to effectively block the light.
An image printed either on an ink jet or laser printer is best. The instructions that accompany EZArtScreen
include an exposure chart for various types of light sources along with detailed directions for making
and using the screens.
Before it's developed, EZArtScreen is heat and light sensitive. Unused
EZArtScreens should be stored in a cool place, like the refrigerator, and kept away from light in
the black envelope it comes in.
Once developed, it loses this sensitivity and can be stored and used over and over again.
