    Default stripping the screen.

    Ive been having some problems stripping my screens after printing.

    I have used stencil strip but can still see some of the design and emulsion on the screen.

    Is there a good way of cleaning the screens back to there original colour or just look cleaner?

    You want to get all the emulsion off, but it's common to see a stain. Screens never go back completely to their original color. As long as you can hold the reclaimed screen up to the light and see through it everywhere then you probably are allright. Underexposed screens leave more of an emulsion stain than properly exposed or overexposed screens.

    I'm having SERIOUS haze problems lately. I just ordered some superstrong shit--supposedly "all-natural" but requires a $22 hazmat insurance?!
