    Default Reversing a Screen?

    Has anyone here reversed a screen before (ie produced a negative version on the same screen)?

    I read it's possible to do it by covering the burned image with screen filler then using screenwash to remove the original burn.

    tips would be appreciated TY!

    why not just burn another with inverted art? I assume whatever you use as filler would wash away too.
    Brg!

    It will be quicker and less trouble to just shoot another screen. Seriously.

    yeah, reclaim, recoat, reshoot and move on.

    that other method sounds like a nightmare waiting on elm street.

    are you printing with oil or water based inks?

    if oil, then all those screen fillers tend to work well. basically you apply it to one side and let it dry then reclaim your screen and the filler will stay.

    water based is more tricky, because you need to use that black tarry stuff that doesn't come out so hot...i don't even know if they make it anymore.

    best bet, call mc logans in los angeles (411 mclogans screen supply in la on main) and ask a guy there. they can be rough around the edges, but they are really informative

    its kind cool to take your positive and try this method there instead of in the screen. the other way is a pain in the ass and i've wrecked a few screens with it. however, the computer accomplishes the same thing easily and if you have rubylith to work with, try taking black cel-vinyl and painting a coat overthe rubylith and then once it's dry, pull the rubylith off. it's a really cool effect, i think

    weathermaker- thanks. main concern will be the filler washing out too, although it says hot water required to remove.

    re- reburning - its a large format and a hand made positive. to invert it that way would cost about 150 ($300) in england and would take longer than i have.

    I think the easiest way to do this is to find a wormhole that lead to a bizarro world where everything is the opposite.
