Sorry in advance for my naive-ness. (that is totaly not a word)

anyhow I have a basic speedball silkscreening kit (I am such an amerature) and I have used it once, and my results were lovely. Anyhow, this was about 4 months ago, but I never cleaned the screen of the emulsion when I was done.  Lips sealed

The kit came with 4oz. of diazo photo remover, how the heck do I use this?!?!? I've searched on google, but to no avail did I get answers! I was hoping you screenprinters could help me out. Thanks!

Crafty, baby! <3

Well, I've never waited that long to attempt a screen recovery, but I did (mostly) recover an overexposed, overemulsed screen with the photo remover.  I put a thin layer of the remover into a cookie sheet and let the screen soak in it for a while.  Then with a soft nail brush, I worked out most of the stuff.  Some places needed a second or third pass and the whole screen was a bit tinted or stained afterwards, but I successfully used it again with a medium detail design.

i usually put my reclaiming solution in a little spray bottle (like from the pharmacy) spray it on both sides (generously) and scrub at it with a dish brush (used only for this). Then i wash it away with a hose under as high pressure as i can get.
