Default Newb trying to reclaim screens

So I bought some stuff second hand which came with like 14 screens 10 of them have designs on them. But they have this blue paint or I'm guessing screen filler painted on the hole screen except where the design is. I have tried to get one removed with emulsion remover and high pressure hose, and I tried 70% alcohol but they aren't really doing anything? Am I missing something or is it too far gone. Can I save the others i haven't touched with emulsion remover?

Purchase some gel dehazor, coat both sides of the screen let it sit overnight in a dark room, and then wash it like you strip screens it will remove old emulsion and stains.
