All about Screen Printing & Stencils
For stencil-making , a good website is

http://www.stencilrevolution.com/

Lots of free tutorials and you can see the kind of work other people make too.

Some examples of great work from the site:

first one (western style t-shirt) is by bsquared
fourth one (dancing woman/silhouette) is by thargon on livejournal
fifth one is by crass on stencil-rev

Thanks! I've been thinking of screen printing my own shirts for a while now and this thread is a good start for me.

gius, I'm very much a novice at this. I've only done some hand painting on T-shirts and did not like the results.

ohhh i misread your post
i thought you said you've been printing for a while now already

Would love to see your stuff once you get some things done :p
i'll post some things too
so far i have done only tests... no 'complete' project like t-shirt, etc.
just random pieces with a print on it to see how the print will look

Separating colour layers on Adobe Photoshop
This is from the Photoshop thread...
It's for separating colour layers to create your stencils.

Here's the original post:

i used the Posterize function in Photoshop to achieve this effect
I'd like to separate those different layers (dark, medium, light greys)
Is there a way?
Or maybe there is another way I could use to create layers (for a multi-colour layered screen print)
and here is the response

^Now that's a neat trick to try on a shirt. I'll post my results once I get something done... it'll be a while though (just too many other things to do).

Yudu sounds great^^ I watched the videos.. I've always made the frames myself, but this is really convenient with the light and drying systems. And I also like the registration lines they added. So awesome she does it right in her kitchen, you don't need to be in a darkroom like me <_<
What bad things did you hear about it? The only thing I noticed was, seems to be you only get two emulsion sheets per pack? And at that price.. You can get a good tub of it as a liquid and apply it yourself with squeegee. It lasts a long time..though you need to make a darkroom. But there might be brands out there that can be done in somewhere dim rather than completely dark

I think the only thing to keep in mind is if the company ever closes down in the future. I heard it happened with Gocco in Japan, they stopped producing supplies.. there was a light bulb that only they made. I wonder what bulbs this machine uses, but everything else (the frame etc) can be removed and used like traditional screen printing.

I have a Yudu machine

1. Watch the DVD to get the "process"
2. Go to the Yudu forums on the internet because half the stuff the DVD says to do are wrong
3. Don't think your going to do it perfect right away, almost everyone messes up there first few times
4. Buy extra emulsion sheets right away (I went through my 2 pack and didn't even get close to making a shirt)
5. You'll get the hang of it in no time and you'll only be making great shirts!!
