MY YUDU ARRIVED AND LOOK WHAT I MADE!!!

Late Wednesday the UPS driver dropped off this huge box containing my latest acquisition via HSN (and their dreaded FLEX PAY and FREE SHIPPING--still just under $300 with tax!). My only "saving grace" is that I have 30 days to try it or return it for a full refund!













I also ordered extra paints and they arrived on Thursday. So with Hubby's help I got it out of the box late yesterday, fully planning to get "rolling" first thing on Saturday (today). Well, after several delays I finally got started.
















Step 1: Create design and make transparency--very easy, went well!
Steps 2 & 3:Prepare Screen and Apply Emulsion to Screen--sort of scary, I hate to waste any of these expensive supplies--but all went well EXCEPT THAT I FORGOT TO REMOVE THE PLASTIC FILM prior to the next steps!!!
Steps 4-6: Adhere transparency to Yudu, Expose Screen--I had to repeat step 6 after I had forgotten to remove the plastic film, but the exposure WORKED!
































Step 7: Wash and dry screen--easy peasey--let's screen print!
Step 8: Print screen--other than having ink all over ME, this step was relatively easy considering I was working on small sized pet tees!
Here's my results (still drying) of my VERY FIRST ATTEMPT AT SCREEN PRINTING WITH THE YUDU!!

I thought about buying one of these machines. But, I feared that I'd make a huge mess. The shirts are adorable. You did a great job!

I tried out the same machine thru HSN and really did so much better than I thought I could! Your t's look wonderful! Anita from OTC :)

How do you like the Yudu? I have pondered getting one but am not sure about how messy it might be and with a 3 year old and a 4 year old in the house - it might be a bit much.

Your shirts turned out great!
