Ok another question. I use the Speedball brand screen filler and I'm wondering if there's any way to remove the filler without having the buy the special filler cleaner. Any particular soap or brand? I just don't really want to shell out the money if I can find a cheaper easier solution to this problem.

not sure about chemicals- i've only ever used the remover, but you can blast the stuff off with a pressure washer.... maybe not on your handmade screens tho.... guess it depends how sturdy they are?

i do know white spirit won't work, acetone probably won't either.

if you do find an ingenious way please share  Grin

My screens are pretty sturdy I think, but alas no pressure washer in my apartment lol. I think I read somewhere someone mentioning about "greased lightning" which I think is a regular household product. If I can find a small bottle of that I might give it a try. Just wondering if there's anything else out there.
