Great shirt!! I have spent a lot of time at Scottish games. I grew up with Dad playing all kinds of bagpipe albums. No Joke-Our house was decorated in Newfies and Scottish stuff. The big dogs and big boys are inseparable to me. Funny how you connect things. Great shirt! BigGrin

I can say that I cheated a little - I was part of the demo army and did demo the machine once for a half an hour but it went horrible!!! But I guess I learned a little of what not to do!

I live close to Tangiers in Firestone Park. I have been here in this house for the last 12 years. I grew up in Norton.

Nice job.

I really need to find the time to learn to use my Yudu. I bought it a couple months ago cheap enough and haven't had time to play with it. I think I will after Wednesday when things slow down here.

I don't want to even act like I am an expert, but how are they ruining?

Are you making sure that there are no air bubbles in the sheets before you dry them? I wet mine a little too much but I would rather let it dry a little longer right now then not have the sheet down properly. Also can't you put the block out on those spots. Isn't that what it is for?

I am learning still also so not that I am glad that you are waisting sheets but that we can have a conversation and get help from those that are better at this than us!!

Can anyone help us?

TIA

USe my "Suck it up" method

Lay your sheet on a table
dampen your screen
Lay the screen on the sheet

it will suck up onto the screen
squeegee

do NOT touch it and make sure that there is no spiderwebbing. If so, spray with water nad squeegee

does the emulsion go on straight or does it not matter? I am kind of a perfectionist and if it was crooked can I move it? Also how dim should the room be while you are working on it. I have fluorescent lights in my house and worked in the darkest area I could....

I'm by far an expert - but Princessaam is about as close as this forum has when it comes to these things (she is a Yudu fountain of knowledge!). The suck it up method will work! It is technically possible to re-position it, but it makes way for a lot of room for error. Just give yourself plenty of space to work and align things up before you get to the point of actually adhering the sheet to the screen.

As far as the lighting goes, as I understand it you 5 or 10 minutes to safely work with your emulsion sheet. I'm rather accident prone and of all the problems I've run into so far, ruining the emulsion b/c of overexposure ahead of time is not one of them. My biggest tip? Relax and have fun!
