This was identical (other than color) to what we used in a professional screen printing shop. Moderation is key or you will have quite a mess on your hands... and screen, and floor, and anything else you are near. I used this with the YUDU printing machine. It worked well for the small jobs I did. I just used the ink squeegee that came with the machine. It probably would've been easier with a better squeegee but I was just doing one or two screens at a time and it didn't require a lot of precision. If you have a smaller design, you can put emulsion only across where your design will be to conserve. Just be sure to tape it off well. You can spread this stuff pretty thin too. I think I made 10 or 15 full screens with this bottle. It's the consistency of white glue and smells pretty similar. If you spill, it's easy to clean up with a wet cloth/paper towel or wait til it dries and peel it off. This is easily removed with the YUDU emulsion remover.

The first thing you want to do is check that nothing has broken, spilled, or dried. The emulsion with be thick like glue and blue in color. The remover will be thin and clear like medical alcohol or bleach. Both should have cardboard gasketed lids and foil caps on them. The sensatizer (tiny bottle) should be either dry and at the bottom, or thick and at the bottom. If any of the sensatizer is spilled out of the little bottle (along the threads or down the side) send the kit back for a new one immediately. The product is good if you get it undamaged, but Speedball uses incompetant monkey powered robots made from scrap pulled from the Robot Wars set to package everything so check your stuff.

As for operation, when the sensatizer is added to the emulsion it turns a good medium (not quite emerald) green and will turn back to blue after it cooks out when you burn the stencil. Look for a light-medium blue hue and the uncooked parts under the negative image should have a yellow, jaundace like hue to them. When cleaning out the emmulsion make sure to wipe up messes immediately as the emulsion leaves yellow stains on nearly every surface known to man, including porcelin and the steel rim around my sink. Trial and error for new users will happen, just don't leave emulsion in a screen for a long period of time if you don't want a permenant stencil, and clean the screen completely before letting it dry if you don't want a permenant stencil (yes the emulsion remover may make the emulsion impossible to remove. Don't ask me how, I failed mad science 101).

I've used screen printing products on and off for quite a few years now on various projects. Because my projects varied, I was never able to nail down a good exposure time. This product made exposure easy. It changes color as it hardens so all you have to do is keep an eye on it, and when the exposed area turns blue - You're done! So easy.

I bought this product because the Yudu products are too expensive. I haven't tried the sheets that come with a Yudu yet, I hear they are difficult. This one took a bit of trial & error to get the thickness etc correct. But after some trial, I learned not to get it too thick. I use a paintbrush to apply & a squeegee to even it out. Then you dry in the rack. It's pretty easy once you experiment.

i generally think of Speedball screenpinting products as being good for amateurs and beginners. While I've transitioned away from Speedball products for the most part in my seven years screenprinting I have stuck with Speedball's photo emulsion because it always gives me great results. This photo emulsion creates great results, the quality and resolution of the imagines I've fixed with this photo emulsion is always great and the only thing limiting the fine details is the mesh count of my silkscreen fabric, not the photo emulsion.

This photo emulsion kit is easier to work with using a homemade setup, I use a 300 watt bulb that I bought at the hardware store for 3 dollars. Cleanup is always easy and this photo emulsion seems to be less toxic than a lot of the other competitors. Overall a great product that I recommend to everyone who wants to get into screen printing.

It is important to understand that Speedball products are by no means meant to be used in a commercial setting, but instead are truly meant for individuals looking to have some fun, and print in very small quantities. If you are thinking about getting into screen printing then I would recommend trying Speedball first, but other than that their products truly lack the quality you will begin to desire.

The reason for the 1-star review here is the fact that this package did not include the crucial piece essential for actually making the emulsion solution at all functional, and that is the "1-ounce photo emulsion sensitizer". It would be one thing if it was written that this package did not include the sensitizer, but the listing actually states: "Includes 6.6-ounce of photo emulsion, 1-ounce of photo emulsion sensitizer, 8-ounces of photo emulsion remover and detailed instructions". There are no "detailed instructions" and there is not a 1-ounce bottle of sensitizer. So instead of being able to start preparing my screens for a weekend project today, I have to write this review, order an individual bottle of sensitizer, and once again wait and hope Speedball hasn't once again failed to provide the product as stated. I am very let down by this, and will be making the leap away from Speedball as quickly as possible. Screen printing is a great hobby, but perhaps Speedball is dropping the...you can guess, in the fact that most people buying this product are just getting into screen printing, and what a horrible way to treat a potential new wave of printers. This is the last time my plans are adjusted because of poor implementation from Speedball.

Includes 6.6-ounce of photo emulsion, 1-ounce of photo emulsion sensitizer, 8-ounces of photo emulsion remover and detailed instructions
