Ehh…not my favorite

It is somewhat similar to cryocoat except that it takes FOREVER to dry. It was still pretty tacky after about 3 days of letting it sit in my darkroom. Had an evacuation fan going the whole time. It burned fine and washed out fine. Haven’t tried to reclaim it yet.


Hello! Thank you for reaching out! I am so sorry that you're having difficulty getting the emulsion to dry. I'm going to reach out to you via email so we can figure out what might be going on. - April w/Ryonet

Excellent emulsion

I’m not sure what the complaints are about, but this emulsion is great! I ordered this product months ago and finally ran out of the blue Baselayr Plastisol. After reading all the reviews I was very worried that Baselayr Complete was going to be thick and take days to dry. I found the Baselayr Complete emulsion to be a little thinner than the the blue Baselayr Plastisol emulsion and the consistency of the emulsion was great! It went on the screens very fast, with excellent coverage and left a very smooth finish. I coated a total of 24 screens, with a combination of 156, 200 and 230 mesh, using a 2-2. The screens were completely dry within 1 hour using a DIY drying cabinet with a 12 inch fan on low. I then burned a 156 mesh and 200 mesh screen to print some of my company shirts, using a LED vacuum exposure unit. After burning the screens for 25 seconds, I dropped them in a dip tank with water for 1 minute and washed them out. Both screens washed out completely, within seconds. The stencils had no pin holes, extremely sharp edges and were very smooth. I dried the screen and got to printing using FN Ink. The green color made it easy to register the screens, the tape stuck to the screens well and I found the squeegee glided over the screens with very little effort on a push and pull stroke. I have used a lot of different emulsions and Baselayr Complete is by far the best one I have used to date. Baselayr Complete is slightly higher Baselayr Plastisol, but I found the difference to be negligible and well worth the upgrade. I have attached some pictures of the screens and finished product. I don’t know why there are some negative reviews, but I found there to be ZERO issues and don’t think you can go wrong with Baselayr Complete! Footnote: I used the new FN Ink Metallic Silver and the results were amazing. The picture does not do this ink justice. I used a 156 mesh screen and it applied perfectly with 1 pass.

Bring back CryoCoat

Takes forever to dry. Stayed tacky for days, and seems to be thicker than CryoCoat- making exposure times longer. Had zero issues with CryoCoat.

Not my favorite

I’ve done multiple tests on this emulsion and has not been producing well in my shop. I’ve tried a 2-1 coat with the emulsion and a 1-1 coat and still trying to get clear this emulsion off after being exposed has been a hassle.


Hi Ashleigh, Thank you for taking the time to leave us some feedback. I have a case submitted for your order and will reach out to you directly to offer support!

Works Great

Works great. Been running it the same way we were running Cryocoat, and it seems to work pretty much the same. Is also the same color as Cryocoat. We have not had any problems with plastisol, water based or discharge. Easier to work with than even the description inplies.


Hey Derek, Your feedback is super helpful and we truly appreciate it! Glad the Base Layer Complete Emulsion is working out better than we expected! Happy printing :) -
