I recently came across a product from Plaid called "Silk Screening Paint". It's made to be used with pre-made stencils that have the screen built in. They are very affordable - about $3 a bottle at A.C. Moore - and they are water based.

Does anyone have any experience using these with a real silk screen process? I am a little leery of using them on my YUDU screens because I am afraid that it won't wash out.

Any information about this product would be helpful. I've been looking online but can't seem to find much about it.

I looked up the screen stencils Plaid makes and it says they're reusable so long as you wash the paint out with mild soap and water, so I'm sure it would come out of a normal screen the same way. The Plaid stencils even use a squeegee, just like normal screen printing. There just isn't a frame to hold the screen/stencil taunt.

... except I'm not 100% sure if the screens YUDU uses are the same type of screen used by other screen printers. I personally use orange monofilament screens from Dick Blick. I know the YUDU screens are white, but I don't know what they're made of.

I'd say test it on a scrap of screen... but you don't stretch your own YUDU screens, do you?

I use these paints a lot. I print with thermofax screens and have found them to behave quite well with the screens.
