1  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Companion cube rug on: September 03, 2012 05:55:34 AM

Who else remembers latch hook rugs?  I loved to do them as a kid!  I remember doing a rainbow, a heart, a teddy bear... Well now I am all grown up and needed a more updated image to do.  A friend had given me a rug that she just started and promptly gave up on so I decided to take it apart and make a companion cube!  Hope you like it!
2  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Discussion and Questions / Re: Yudu Screen Printing Machine on: June 25, 2011 04:53:46 AM
The YUDU hack kit is pretty much the same thing, I just didn't want to pay $67.95 because I wasn't sure if it would work.  I decided on the Diazo kit because it was $19.46 and the scooper was $11.90 =$31.36 which I thought wasn't as scary as the almost $70 (plus I had a $50 AMZON gift certificate)  From what I have read it seems that both the hack kit and the stuff I got are pretty much the same thing.  GOOD LUCK!
3  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Discussion and Questions / Re: Yudu Screen Printing Machine on: June 24, 2011 05:44:08 AM
I used Speedball Diazo Photo emulsion and it worked absolutely perfect!  I bought the "kit" and it came with the emulsion remover which took off the YUDU brand emulsion sheet that my friend messed up when she first tried to apply it.  I read nothing but horror stories on the YUDU sheets so I decided to skip all that frustration and go right to the liquid emulsion.  I took a few years of silkscreen classes in college so I had some experience with screens.  I also got myself a 10" scooper from silkscreeingsupplies.com and that made applying so much easier ($11.90+ship = totally worth it)

Hope this helps!  Sadly most YUDU discussions seem to be dead so I guess I'm a little late on the scene.
4  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Completed Projects / My first Yudu Project on: June 22, 2011 09:03:35 AM
I bought a used Yudu from my friend not really knowing what I was getting myself into.  In typical Joni manner I bought first and then asked questions later!  My friend had unsucessfully put one of the emulsion sheets on the screen, it was flaking off and was un-usable.  So I brought everything home and started to do my homework.  I took silkscreening in college, but that was almost 16 years ago so I had some catching up to do.  The first things I bought were these:

I looked on youtube and saw how to coat my screen.  I coated on both sides.  For my first time around I think I layed it on a little think.  I then burned my screen using the setting on my Yudu machine.

The burned images came out perfect!  I had the transparencies made at Kinkos so it was super cheap.  Next I printed my image.

As you can see I got a little bit of a double image, it's because I ran the squeege over the screen 2 times.  I had forgotten to first flood my screen, on my 2nd attempt (for my CAKE tee-shirt) I did it right and it came out perfect!  Now to start working on some Christmas gifts!

Oh and the emulsion remover that came with the Diazo kit easily removed the Yudu sheet emulsion that my friend had unsuccessfully put on.  I also used Speedball fabric inks which were way cheaper than the tiny little bottles of ink that Yudu sells.

Thanks for looking!

All the little details on this just make these phenomenal!  Excellent pics!  I can just imagine all the little fairies doing their chores and living in these little homes.  The roofs are so neat!

What really makes this for me is the thickness of the lines and the bright colors.  This is fantastic!

Such tiny perfect little stitches, you did a wonderful job!  I find that I think up the silliest things either in the shower or when I'm lying awake at night!  Hehehe.
