So cool!  Photosensitive screens are exposed with sunlight or a fluorescent lamp - no extra equipment taking up space in your work area. Designed screens can be mounted in a frame for printing or you may simply run duck tape around the edges to give you a wider margin for handling and inking. Simply peel the film off after printing, store the screen for later use and reuse your frame for a new design.

 High Resolution PhotoEZ  is our favorite version. Perfect for fine line drawings, detailed halftones - for cards, fabric, ceramic paints, glass etching. Did we mention it is perfect for gocco printing?
HiRes photoscreen works well for reproducing photographs and is fine enough for even high precision scans like printed circuit boards.  One caveat:
Coarser pigments may clog in the mesh so it's best to work with finely ground pigments. Most onglaze/china paints and most commercial glazes (Duncan Concepts, for instance) are fine. ;->                                                               For more info, please visit the creativeartscafe's ezphoto tutorial

INKJET Transparencies: 

Which side of the film do I print on?
Waterproof film has two sides, the carrier sheet side and the inkjet receptive side. You can tell which side is the inkjet receptive side by the getting your finger slightly wet and touching the film. The side your finger sticks to is the printable side.

What are the optimal printer settings?
Inkjet Printers: Open your printer menu "Utilities" drop down menu to choose the following options:
~  Select BEST QUALITY PHOTO or BEST IMAGE This will enable your printer to print at its max resolution.
~  Select paper settings dropdown to "premium glossy photo paper" or similar. This tells your printer to lay down the maximum amount of ink, which gives you the best opacity.

 

*  Handle the printout with care; it may remain wet longer than usual. Some printers allow you to select "longer drying time". This function is in the "Advanced" tab on the print options menu.
