I knew that the Yudu instructions were not worth using. I'd been warned. But in order to learn what to change about the instructions one must do it, fail and do it again. This morning I read a bunch of blogs and watch youtube instructionals made by folks who've already done some troubleshooting. Today I did burn a screen! Half my art worked but that had more to do with my poor selection of appropriate images and less to do with the machine. I have not yet inked anything, tomorrow's another day. What I've learned so far: when the instructions guide you to wet your screen before laying down the emulsion - use a spray bottle and thoroughly spray the screen. place the emulsion sheet and then wet it again with the spray bottle from the back of the screen and use the squeege to press out ALL and any bubbles, veins, etc. This will cause your screen dry time to be about 4 to 5 times; using the preset fan button you'll need to run it about 5 times. Burning the image into the emulsion: the preset button for this part is an adjustable clock. Set the time for a minimum of 9 minutes. Tomorrow I will try longer as I have a feeling it will work even better. Finally, the lesson learned on art. . . choose art with big fat lines, nothing dotted or small. I did know this but now I realize it's really true! Tomorrow I hope to finally complete the process. More as it comes. . .
