Sceen Printing Blunders :
Damaged Stencil

I washed off the black ink from the screen and noticed that it stained the screen (which was natural) but I think I saw clogged areas that I couldn't remove by just pressured water and soap, so I searched for what to do at t-shirtforums.com. There's a product called screen opener that actually solves the problem but I'm not sure if it's available here. I've read that some use lacquer thinner to remove the dried-up ink and so I tried it.

It think I got the clog off (if they are actually clogged), as well as the stains, and I got part of the stencil rubbed off too. Crap! I didn't even get to print on an actual shirt!

At least the new Pinoy Blogger designed was successfully burned tonight. I guess Fitz will wear only that design on the event, if the design ever reached shirt-hood.
