Removing the Stencil
Stencil removers come in the form of liquids, gels or powders. The powdered types have to be mixed with water before use—therefore they belong to the liquid category. Liquid stencil removers (also know as: emulsion removers) are often the easiest to use and most cost effective.
One solution is to use a pump spray or a squeeze bottle to apply the stencil remover a little at a time. A long handled brush also comes in handy for catching the stencil remover as it runs down the screen and working it into the emulsion. Be sure to follow the instructions for using your stencil remover. A botched reclaiming attempt can result in a stencil that’s permanently locked into the mesh.
