Provo Craft is working on bigger & better bottles.   Smiley

I would be cautious about what inks to use though.  -You can see the results of using different inks here (scroll down a bit): http://www.whatdoyudu.com/tutorials/default.aspx

I have heard that some people have removed the emulsion with just warm water.  A friend of mine used Simple Green & warm water.  -I guess you could experiment & see...the worst that could happen is you'd have to buy a new screen.

i think from what i read is that the makers of the yudu dont recommend any other inks, do to with the other inks possibly wrecking the emulsion or screen itself when you clean,  if you would try they wont handle their warranty if something does happen to the machine

I am interested in using this machine (Yudu by Provocraft) to "print" on stoneware clay after it has been bisque fired. The pieces will be flat tiles.   The glazes I use are water based so I don't think they can ruin a screen or platen.  I do realize that  I may "I run" and not produce crisp lines, I would do simple designs only.  Anyone have any thoughts on this?

Thanks!
Madeline

Martha Stewart actually had this on her show last week and it looked pretty cool, however, my friend just bought one for her college age son and returned it when she found that new screens are $40 each (for 2+ color designs) and the cost of accessories (inks, wash, etc.) were high.  It still pique's my interest, though.  For anyone who uses this product, please show us your results!!

i actually got to use it last night to try it out for my demo this saturday i can take some pics today when i get back in at work.

only bad things are the red ink stains the screen and your hands   and you MUST make sure that there are no air bubbles left when you put the emulsion on the screen cuz i had taken a small part off when i washed the screen.   the screens where premade for the demo at joann's so i had no control for that other wise i would have made sure there wasnt any bubbles

Memory Making Crafts has the 110 Mesh Screens for around $25.00, and 3-pack inks for around $19....not too bad IMO.  You could also use your coupon for Yudu stuff at JoAnn's.

Erin,

I'll definitely post my results! It looks like my results may be better on wet clay as per the book "Image Transfers on Clay" by P. Wandless.  In the book they mention the different types of mesh used in silkscreen.  In regards to your earlier post "Memory Making Crafts has the 110 Mesh Screens" Do you know what type of mesh the Provo Craft machine comes with?  The book recommends that you use 120-260 mesh. I have not yet purchased the machine, I was planning on attending the demo at Jo-Ann's on Sat. and purchasing the machine then.

Thanks!
Madeline

you can not use your joann's coupon on the yudu stuff but at this time the yudu machine and the supplies are on sale,  and i looked at the prices and it was about $26 regular price for the new screens and  $8 regular price for the pack of 2 emulsion sheets,  the machine is on sale for 199.99 instead of the regular price of 299.99

please do  come to the demo as you may also bring home with you a tshirt or any other project the person demoing makes,

Wow, seems like I used my ACMoore coupon just in time.  I see now that they've added Yudu to their list of things that you can't buy with their coupon.  Joann's 40% off of supplies is a great deal.  I'll definitely be attending a demo this weekend and stocking up on some goodies.
