Newbie - HELP!

Hi there.

Great forum! I'm having some issues. I am using Permaset black ink onto 300gsm paper for artwork. The first print is ok but then the paper starts coming off onto the mesh in places - any idea why this is? I didn't leave a gap between screen and paper at first but I tried it with a gap which was better but still having issues. Is there any type of paper I should or shouldn't be using for this? How much pressure should there be? Secondly and more disastrously I made a mistake of using water based acrylic paint with emulsion made for water based inks. This has totally messed up my screen. Part of the image is there and wont was off as has some of the emulsion - I've tried everything! Is my screen ruined? I realise this is totally my own fault!

Any help would be massively appreciated.

Thank you

David.
