Whats a good method for getting out all the skins when everything has sprouted?

I get them out BEFORE everything sprouts. Use a big bowl and swirl and skim into the sink and then when seeds start going to go out, put into a strainer until you are not getting a good ratio of skin to seed. Don't pour all of the seeds into the strainer. Rinse repeat 2-3x. Then take the contents of the strainer into a bowl and swirl to remove as many skins as possible and as few seeds, then keep the rest and call it good.

I haven't done sunflower seeds a lot, but this usually works well for me, when removing hulls and skins.
In a bowl while swirling and skimming as outlined above, grab a handfull now and then and drop them into the bowl from 1-2 feetabove. The impact with the water will generally peel off most of the clinging skins. Then they're seperated by the skimming or by floating them off.
