Photo Emulsion Method - Preparing Your Screen
Speedball's Diazo Photo Emulsion is a 2-step process where the photo emulsion needs to be 'activated.' To activate the emulsion, the sensitizer must be added. The sensitizer is a very thick oil and needs water to create the right consistency for adding it to the emulsion. (The bottle is not empty!) The big advantage of Speedball's Diazo Photo Emulsion is no need to work in a light safe environment. Simply working under normal light will keep the emulsion from premature exposure.
Coating the Screen
This is your first task of skillful craft. The fundamental goal of coating a screen is to thoroughly permeate the mesh with the emulsion without overly saturating it and leaving emulsion dripping off. Lay your screen horizontally to dry in a dark place for a minimum of 4 hours. Cupboards, closets, empty drawers, etc. are all great places.
Exposing Your Image
The amount of time it will require to properly expose your image will depend mostly on your light source. Speedball makes this easy by including a lamp and photoflood bulb with the Advanced-All-In One Kit. Suggested times for exposing with the lamp and bulb can be found in the detailed instruction booklet that is included in the kit.
Washing Out Your Stencil
Using a spray nozzle or hose, apply a forceful spray of water to both sides of your screen until all unwanted emulsion is gone and you can easily see your stencil/image. Dab the screen dry with newspaper or towel (Do not rub! The emulsion is still wet), and leave it to dry fully.
Photo Emulsion Method - Creating Your Print
Secure the Perimeter
Unwanted ink can sometimes seep under the frame and leach onto your substrate during printing. To help prevent this, tape the perimeter of the frame.
Creating Your Print
Pulling your squeegee is the heart of the craft of screen printing. The speed of your pull, squeegee angle, pressure and 'ink wrangling' are some of the core skill of a good print. Before printing, it is always wise to print some 'test prints' on scrap paper or fabric. This will help you recognize and remedy any issues before legitimate printing. If printing shirts or bags, cut a piece of thick paper, cardboard, or foam board to slide inside the shirt to keep ink from bleeding onto the other side when printing.
The Big Reveal
The time has come! After all your hard work, it's time to see your project come to life. Lift your screen and experience the miracle of screen printing. You can give yourself a pat on the back, you just produced your first screen print using the photo emulsion method.
All Speedball screen printing inks are water-based, and safe to wash down the drain. Soap and water will easily wash up any excess ink. It is natural that some inks may permanently stain the mesh of the screen, but this will not affect print quality at all.

It is still too early in the pandemic to make definitive statements about the full impact of the COVID-19 virus on the auditory/vestibular and central auditory systems. Author Bob DiSogra, AuD, advises that hearing care professionals should revise their Case History forms and consider adding tests for auditory processing disorders and a cognitive screening in order to make the appropriate referral(s) for patients. Counseling will continue to be a major part of the patient’s experience with hearing care clinicians.
A single loud blast or explosion that lasts for less than 1 second can cause permanent hearing loss right away. This noise, called impulse noise or impact noise, can come from sources such as fireworks or gunfire.
With this year’s return of cicadas, many will view the mostly harmless insects as an annoyance. However, the bugs’ high-pitched buzzing sound — which can be loud enough to drown out a jet plane flying overhead — could potentially worsen tinnitus.
While provider participation in managed care remains optional, managed care is now an integral part of US healthcare. Hearing care as a supplemental benefit will continue to grow in private and public health plans. Author Carrie Meyer, AuD, says it is critical that audiologists and hearing aid specialists understand the dynamics of managed care and become well informed to make the best decisions for their practices and their patients in this rapidly changing healthcare environment. Part 1 of this 3-part series is a primer on health insurance and managed care.
