Yes, I jumped at the chance to buy a Yudu for $99 at Michaels a few weeks ago. I had heard mixed reviews about it, but when I told my boyfriend I could make him customized t-shirts for his photography business, he went out and got it for the both of us! Isn't he the best?? Sorry, I'm not sharing him ;)
There she is! My beautiful baby :) I did A LOT of research before I tried to burn my first screen. I read some HORRIBLE reviews of the machine, and the emulsion sheets, but luckily I had very few problems when I used my Yudu for the first time. My emulsion sheet burned pretty perfectly on the screen. The only mess up I had is that when it came to rinsing out the burned emulsion sheets, I scrubbed a little too hard and one corner of the design washed off. Luckily, I fixed it with tape and we were good to go.
Here's the front of my first Yudu shirt! I used Speedball Opaque white Fabric ink, as I was worried about the Yudu ink on black. My own regret is that I didn't pull white through the icon first, and then pull yellow over the white. The color would have been much brighter had I done that. But besides that, I think it turned out great!
Here's his URL screened on the back of the shirt (shameless plug, LOL). I didn't get it entirely straight, but he loves it so I'm OK with it. I also made him another shirt that is white with black ink. He's also asked me to make him a sweatshirt, and I can't wait to try it!
In a few days I'll have another Yudu post for you. I wanted to try screening on canvas, and I can't WAIT to show you the results! I also hope to have a Yudu video tutorial for you guys soon!
