Re: Re: spots and dots and UVBL solarplates

Lets just call them UV/FL (white in color) and UV/BLBFL (for black light 
purple/blue in color). I am not one for letter but in this case it might work. 
A friend of mine gave me an Aristo exposure unit. Which is charged neon type 
of bulb we will see if it is any differant (white light not purple/blue).

I tried some KM plate exposures and did not get a good plate the ink jet 
posative was to thin. Back to square 1. UV/FL exposure.

Thanks to all of you  Jon, keith, Susan, Chris not sure who else but thanks 
with any luck (and without bad luck, I wouldn't have any) I may have some 
prints at APIS.

All the best

And more particularly, "UV Blacklight Tubes".  Tanning UV Tubes seem to 
have a better quality to them for poly plates, from what I've seen.  
Never seen anyone using a big unit employing UV Tanning lights though...
