I have done quite a bit of silk-screening using the paint-on and screen filler method. I've been wanting to do photo emulsion for some time but haven't gotten around to building a light box - then I found the Yudu on sale at Michael's for around 65% off and couldn't resist!

The first project with the yudu was softball tee's. I did some research and discovered that people were having a difficult time with the emulsion sheets that came with the machine so I opted to use Speedball liquid emulsion instead. The screen burned like a charm! Can't wait to use this thing some more very soon. Thanks for lookin'!

For the numbers I used the freezer paper method rather than buying iron-ons.



This was the only [slight] reject. I noticed that the thin lines came out very faint on the first print so I tried lowering the screen and printing a second pass. The image became quite blurry as I wasn't able to line up the screen properly so I had to use a small paint brush to fill in the lines and make it solid.

I love these! What a cool name for a team. I got my Yudu on a deep discount too but have been frightened to use it due to the emulsion sheet thing! The liquid emulsion sounds like a good solution though.

Here is a great video I found on YouTube that helped a lot! I don't have the silver thing he uses but I just spread the emulsion with the yudu squeegee then stuck it in the little dryer compartment. Don't be afraid, it's easier than you think! And thanks. Smiley
