Instructions for All Screen Fillers

  • Before printing, completely air dry screen filler the same way you would dry your stencil.
  • Use Extra Heavy Blockout No. 10 for easier handling, for coverage with a single coating or with coarse mesh.
  • For direct emulsion and CDF Direct-Film stencils: Pour a small amount onto the border area of the fully processed and dried stencil on the printing side of the screen. Scrape it evenly into the mesh, using a piece of cardboard or plastic. Apply a second, "reinforcing" coat to the squeegee side of the screen, if necessary.
  • For Indirect System stencils: For best register and a strong "knit" between stencil and screen filler, apply the screen filler, as above, when the screen mesh is dry, but before the indirect film is completely dry. Apply the screen filler to the printing side of the screen, going over the edges of the backing sheet.
  • For touchups: Use full strength or thin with tap water and touch up as needed with either end of an artist's brush.
  • To remove: After ink removal, but before stencil removal, dissolve with water.
  • Air dries, so keep the cap on.
