drawing ink failing

Postby zaynan » Tue May 27, 2008 10:34 am

I'm pretty new to this so I'm probably doing somthin TOTALLY wrong but here goes!...

I've drawn a design on the screen with a soft pencil - a fairly fine design. I've then made a positive using drawing ink - I've tried using it neat and diluted but each time after applying the block and washing off the ink it appears that the drawing ink has not stopped the block getting on the screen in places so that the final print area is 'contaminated.
It appears the drawing ink is not adhering to the screen in some areas.
Any help would be gratefully received!
