1  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Discussion and Questions / thinner, red emulsion sheets on: July 13, 2013 12:20:46 PM
Since Yudu emulsion sheets are way too expensive, I've looked for alternatives.  Liquid emulsion will only last in the fridge for about 4 months once it's mixed, so it doesn't look particularly cheap unless you do a lot of silk screening.  I do all types of crafts, so I know I wouldn't use the liquid up.  I've seen other sheets that are a lot cheaper than the Yudu's which are red and a couple of microns thinner than the green.  Has anyone used these and, if so, what do you think?  If a packet of 10 sheets will last 4-6 months in black packaging, it may be the cheapest way for a hobbyist to go IF it actually works.  Any thoughts?
2  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / stiff backing material on: August 10, 2012 09:42:04 AM
I want to make some attractive "things" to attach to fabric that's been sewn on velcroe that will be used on replaceable strap flip flops.  Therefore, the backing needs to be lightweight, but sturdy.  The base will be glued or sewn on, so it needs to be able to take apoxy or fabric glue.  I'll be using beads, rinestones, yarn, fabric, etc. to decorate the "things". The best I've come up with so far are large, inexpensive buttons, but I was hoping there was something out there that was thinner, but almost as sturdy.  Metal washers were also something I was thinking of, but they'd be too heavy.  Any suggestions from more experienced "jewerly and trinket" makers?
3  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Luminarte problems on: April 24, 2009 07:50:19 AM
I was wondering how many other people are having problems getting items/refunds from Luminarte.  They advertised a 40% off going-out-of-business sale, so I placed an order for paints on Feb. 20.  They charged my card on March 9.  I called three weeks ago to see how long it was going to take and was told that the order would be mailed in about 4 days.  Then I received their general e-mails indicating more delays.  I called again on Tuesday, April 20, to cancel the order and get a refund and was told it was in the box to be shipped that day.  I insisted on a cancellation and refund (and was given a hard time, BTW.)  I called again this morning (Friday, April 24) to see if the refund had been made and was told that it would be done today.  Needless to say, I don't believe it.  Do any of you have similar stories or is it just me?
