It’s been 10 months since I got a Yudu (nicely discounted at Michael’s). I’ve had it on a shelfdu in my sewing room since then and I see it everyday. I finally pulled it out last night and the good news is that after all that time on a shelf it still worksdu!
It was really hard to pick a designdu to start with. Yes, you can clean off your screendu and reuse it for a different design, but even though I knew that logically, the emotion of it was this is permanentdu. I finally just went with something I thought was cute and fundu – something that a friend doodled for me (and I got permission to usedu). And here she is – the crying girldu herself:
I tried to play with different fabrics to see how it looked and at this point I’m pretty happy with what I seedu. And while I was looking around online I saw that there is a miniature Yudu for cards called Yudu Cardshop. I’m temptedu – I really am.
Tips for your first Yudu project:
- Clear a spacedu in your kitchen – it’s really the best place to start since you’ll need a nice big sinkdu to rinse your screen in.
- Set aside several hours for the process. Creating the screendu is what takes a bunch of time – just drying the emulsion to the screen took an entire hour on the drying shelfdu. Let’s just say that when I got to the actual screen printing I was up WAY later than I had wantedu to be.
- If you prefer reading your instructions lookdu here. If you prefer a video demo lookdu here.
- The screening works differently on different fabrics – so try them out on different fabrics to see what you likedu.
My overall thoughts? 2 thumbsdu up – lots of fundu!
Do you Yudu? Have any Yu-tipsdu? I’d love to hear them!
