REVERSE FILM!!

Everything is big brain, air gunsa, did a couple things this week no problem. The reverse film will stick to half of it, tried three different cups with it. It runs down it. Other film no problem. 60 second soak, 60 seconds after spray. give or take 15 seconds. Anybody have this issue with this film type??

    The flags are reversed in the print... Notice the "field of blue" is in the upper right-hand corner of the flag... It may be a pattern name he is referring to.

    Any particular reason you are waiting 60 seconds after spraying? Your activator is evaporating away.

    Sorry guys. Yes reverse insanity skulls. It turned out to be a gun problem. And I was just always told to let sit for 60 seconds. How I've always done it. Maybe I'll try less time

    60 seconds between laying the film on the water and activating it. There is usually no need to wait more than about 10 seconds after activating and dipping unless you have problems with really heavy inks not activating all the way through. Even then, it's more like 15-20 seconds. Any longer and it's just evaporating off.

    I have waited 30 seconds after activation on some particularly thick films....but that ain't one of them...
