    Default Screen Filler for use with H2O-based Inks?

    Does anyone know a good solvent based filler to use with WB inks? I used to use this pink stuff out of a can that had no label. I got the blue WB filler stuff for the solvent based printing but find it difficult to locate the 'other way round' stuff.
    I need it to block out parts of the image that i'll go back to and print using a different color, without the hassle of making multiple screens and re-registering etc... etc... so using emulsion is not an option....

    hints?

    and YES... i will get on the premium membership thing... (again).

    yeah. the Finish W1 is cool-ish
    ...but on further searches it turns out that the reclaim part is done with stencil reclaim solution like with all of these googled ones i've come across so far.
    I'm really hoping to find one which can be removed with solvents that leave the stencil intact.

    just thought maybe some gentleman/gentlemam out there might just know...

    but yes. i shall find one.

    I used to use a lacquer block out from TW, but it was a pain in the ass. Could be removed with lacquer thinner, but not as easy as with the WB blockout with a solvent ink stencil.

    We use the W1 block as well. But it only comes off in reclaim

    Like Squee3 says, just make another screen - unless you can use an enamel ink or some similar material, and then wash it off with thinners.
