I saw a tutorial online (I think it was Printcutsew, but I can't find it again) that showed pouring the screen filler onto the screen and using a squeegee as if the filler were ink -- and the result was a beautiful, filled screen with no streaks or clumps.  It looked so easy!

However, when i tried this, my screen filler was very liquid (Speedball) and it didn't distribute evenly. It streaked and most went all over my table -- squeegeed out through the screen.

I must be missing a step.  Can I thicken the screen filler?  I've been using a sponge-brush to apply the screen filler, but it's not the most elegant technique and I have a lot of touch-ups that need doing later.

Help!

OK.  I found another tutorial and I think I might have solved my problem -- I was trying to apply the screen filler from the inside of the screen and since it was touching the table, that made it all glob there.  I will try applying the screen filler from the other side and see what happens.

Thank goodness for screen cleaner!

Problem solved!  Pays to make sure the screen is the right direction up...
