Let me start by saying i'm pretty much a rookie at this....
In both cases I'm using Ulano TZ emulsion w/ speedball acrylic inks...
1) I want to reprint using the same screen stencil. I scrubbed out the ink for quite a while w/ water and a nylon brush in the tub there is some ink residue. How can I remove the ink without damaging the emulsion? Or should I just start over?
2) I want to reclaim a screen and used Ulano Stencil Remover #4 in attempt to do so. Again I scrubbed w/ the stencil remover and a nylon scrub brush in the tub and again I have residue left in the screen... this time it's the emulsion not the ink. I had seen on a previous post that a bit of bleach and blasting the screens at the local car wash may work... any other suggestions?
Picked up some haze remover but didn't have to use it... ended up re-applying the stencil remover and washing them out at the car wash. Worked perfectly.
So I'm stoked especially since the kid at the silkscreening supply place said the screens were ruined and not to even bother with the haze remover. Guess he was trying to take advantage of the fact that I'm just learning.
You need to tell that kid at the store to eat your ass. It takes a whole lot to really fuck up your screens. Seriously, call that guy on his bullshite, see what he says, I want to hear the song and dance he gives.
