I underexposed a screen a while ago. A lot of the emulsion blew out. I seem to have made a big mistake by not reclaiming the screen immediately and I let it sit for a few weeks. Now the emulsion won't budge. Is there any way of reclaiming this is it just a loss?

Thanks

I'm going to guess that since the emulsion blew out and now the screen won't reclaim that it was underexposed. With some emulsions, underexposure along with a day or two of being dry can result in the emulsion becoming permanently locked into the mesh.

Give it one more try using a green scrubby pad and a lot of elbow grease, along with a power washer adjusted for high pressure and see if you can make some progress. If not, you might as well remesh that frame.
