Before coating the screen, put your frame on a bright light source back side up. Next take your halftone and lay it on the mesh emulsion down, or the same way you would put it to burn.

Now rotate the haltone until the moire disappers and apply 2 small pieces to tape to keep it from moving. Now take a pen or pencil and follow the edge of your ponsitive, creating an outline on the mesh.

Now coat your screen. When it is dry you will be able to see the outline of your positive thru the emulsion.

Now lay the screen down back sided up and re-align your positive to the outline and tape it down. NOTE: only tape one edge of your positive, this will allow it to flatten out properly under vacuum.

Expose and process as normal
