Why am I getting a mottled pattern?

Hi.
I'm trying to find a way of screen printing with domestic emulsion, silk and eggshell paints. The result at the moment is a very mottled finish. I've tried watering the paint down, thinking it was just about viscosity but it continued to be mottled until it was so runny it bled under the stencil.
Advice would be appreciated.
Thanks, Cathy

Most likely has to do with texture of fabric. Thicker ink would be a suggestion. Also what mesh fabric are you using and what stencil type?
