Step 4: Spreading the EmulsionUsing the squeegee, spread the emulsion on both sides of the screen. Notethat since it is liquid, the emulsion will seep through to the other side of the screenwhen spreading.Make sure that your screen should be as even as possible, hold it up to lightto see if it smooth and all areas are fully covered.Step 5: Drying the ScreenPut the screen, flat side up, in a dark room todry. You can also use a small fan if you want tocirculate air so it will dry faster.
