Way back in May I was super lucky and won a Yudu screenprinting system from Got Craft (my favorite craft fair in Vancouver because it's full of awesome).
I had a lot of ideas for it but struggled to find a big chunk of time to learn and get it going and make a disaster of the apartment. There was one idea I wanted to pull off in time for Christmas, so I finally got to work on it once my holiday vacation started.
I followed the step by step instructions that came with the Yudu and burned the screen without any problems. Easy peasy.
Then on to the fun part - the printing!
I taped off all the images except the one I wanted, flooded the screen with ink and did my first impression.
It turned out perfectly! I was really pleased with all of the prints, actually.
I live in a 600sqft apartment, so having the screen-burning + drying rack + printing surface all in one makes it doable. If you've got more space, you can probably screenprint the normal way for less.
In the end I didn't make nearly as big a mess as I thought I would - it also didn't take as long as I thought; I burned the screen on one day and did the printing the next day - which gave the screen loads of time to dry and made it all seem less daunting somehow. :)
These napkins turned out so well, my brain is off thinking up new projects!
Thank you Got Craft? and Yudu!!
