On Thursday, Michael's had the best price I have ever come across on the YuDu - reg. $299, it was on sale for $99. I made up my mind that I would sacrifice something this month & get it.
I made a call to the nearest Michael's & found out they had two left. I took a "lunch break" and headed out to the store.
The box was alot larger than I thought it would be. I had worked with the YuDu last summer, but never saw one boxed. Because it was so big, it stayed boxed in the livingroom until the weekend when I had time to figure out where to put my new toy... I mean investment ;)
I found a link to a video where the creative crafter used vinyl on the underside of her screen instead of hassling with the emulsion. I figured that would be a great way to try a few things out without wasting my emulsion & permanently setting my screen (there's no emulsion remover in the box - what's up with that ProvoCraft?)
I also found that the YuDu brand paint was a little expensive. Heading to the internet again, I did a little research & found that the paint needed to be waterbased & designed for screenprinting. So, I decided to venture over into the t-shirt section of Joann & see what the price difference was... Well, PC sells the YuDu paint (3 oz.) for about $7.99-$10.99 per bottle & Plaid Simply Screen (2 oz.) is $2.99. So, since I was under budget constraints, I decided to give it a try <-- I'll come back on Thursday & do a little comparison for my Thursday Test.
I like the projects I did so far - baby blankets for a friend's baby shower & "matching shirts" for me and my daughter.
Stay tuned this week for more adventures with the YuDu!
