Derivan Silkscreen Liquid Stencil Set is a non-toxic and water-based screen printing system suitable for the home, classroom or art studio. The set contains the Derivan Drawing Fluid, Derivan Screen Block Out and Derivan Screen Cleaner.

To use the Derivan Silkscreen Liquid Stencil Set, take a clean silkscreen and draw out your design by applying the Derivan Drawing Fluid with a brush ensuring it is evenly applied. Leave to dry for a few hours. (It will still feel tacky to the touch).

Next, apply the Derivan Screen Block Out with a squeegee passing a good even layer of the medium across the whole screen. Leave for 48 hours to dry fully. You can now wash the screen with cold water on both sides and this will remove the Derivan Drawing Fluid. Allow the silkscreen to dry completely (this may take a number of hours or days depending on the environmental conditions). You are now ready to screen print your design onto paper, wood or fabric lasting for multiple prints before the screen Block Out degrades and will need to be cleaned.

To remove the Derivan Screen Block Out use soap and water and a soft brush or sponge to work away at the screen. For dried on Block Out use the Derivan Screen Cleaner provided in the set. Apply the Derivan Screen Cleaner generously with a wet sponge covering both sides of the screen and leave for five minutes. This gives the cleaner chance to absorb and break down the Derivan Screen Block Out from the fibres of the screen mesh. (You can apply a wet cloth over the screen to assist the process). After five minutes use an old toothbrush to work away at the screen. Use small circular motions on both sides of the screen until the Block out has been moved. If Derivan Screen Block Out has dried out on the screen for more than five days you may need to repeat the process multiple times to fully remove the residue. Rinse the screen with cold water and leave to dry.

When using Derivan Screen Cleaner wear protective clothing, eyewear and gloves.
