My yudu (will keep editing things as I find)

is supposed to arrive today. So before opening have to gather facts.
I have been watching some videos and other stuff
I made some notes
1) try using vinyl or contact paper ( now I have to see for myself what this thingy is - is it the shelf paper we get at target and walmart? hmm) instead of emulsion
2) there are 2 screens (3rd to come) one already on there for cloth and 2nd a 220 mesh screen which needs to be used for paper. They are coming with a 3rd one - 70 for glue which you can then use flock and glitter on.
3) get more than one mesh if I need to keep a design and re use
4) Keep checking the forum
5)Some options  for emulsion
a) Get the emulsion sheet from silkscreensupplies (also ink) just make sure they are water based -http://www.silkscreeningsupplies.com/store/799934/product/RyoCap3016X300
or the cut out screens at the same shop
http://www.silkscreeningsupplies.com/product/RYOCAP3010X15
b) or get scoop coater - 10 inch and speedo liquid emulsion (water based)  and apply

well all in all http://www.silkscreeningsupplies.com/yudu-printing-supply-inks is good place to start

6) OPEN THE BOX AND USE
ha ha. my stampmaker (and cinch) is not even out of the box. Hope Dawn aka nurseviper really doesn't reads this. Poor thing went out on a weekend and posted the stampmaker and I got it in 2 days. But well if I fall in love with that thing she does yet not have stamp gel packs refills... So she can't blame me right?  :)

Wow, you have all the toys!!! Can't wait to see what you do with this!

Oh, Pam, I'll be so glad when you get yours so you can let us know all about it. I've had mine for over a year and it's still in the box -- never used it!!! I took one look at it and got so intimidated although it's supposed to be easy! I can't wait until you try yours out and give us some helpful tips and insight.

I've been dying to use it and I guess I'm just afraid to experiment because it's soooo the inks and screens are so expensive, and it's difficult (I've heard) sometimes trying to find the exposure stuff!

Awesome! I have been able to use the already prepped screens and the ink. It's fun!

I can't wait to see what you make!

My daughter wants a Yudu. I'm just afraid it won't get used. And afraid where to put it; it's bigger than the Imagine. Let me know how you like that stampmaker when you start using it. I've looked at it a few times, but haven't gone there yet.
