Success With The Scoop Coater



My second try at applying emulsion with a scoop coater was a success! It was easy! My first try was a bomb probably because it was all guess work. My coater did not come with any instructions. I did a little more web search and found these helpful links:

Here's the screen with a nice coat:

This screen was the same screen I used the screen filler technique on. I scrubbed the screen filler off with Speed Clean. It took about 5-6 applications/scrubbing to remove it all. It was such hard hard hard work ... okay you can whip out the violin (to go with my whining).

Coating an even layer of emulsion definitely helped with a even exposure. Now I have to purchase a smaller scoop coater for my smaller screens.
