YUPO Synthetic Paper - Translucent 153gsm (104lb) 5"x7" 15 Sheets
YUPO® synthetic paper is a unique alternative to traditional papers. Painting or drawing on the ultra-smooth surface of YUPO is different than regular watercolour or drawing paper and will require some adjustments by the artist. The surface may be wiped clean to restore the original white of the sheet, making it an excellent surface for beginners. YUPO is also a very exciting substrate for more advanced and experimental artists. Its creative possibilities and suitable applications are infinite. Watercolour need drying time by evaporation. Alcohol inks will dry quickly on YUPO.
It's an incredibly durable, stain-resistant, non-absorbent synthetic paper that holds ink and watercolour with razor sharp precision. This extraordinary surface also resists tearing and buckling and it remains perfectly flat. YUPO requires no soaking, stretching or taping flat. What makes it even more unique is its lifting quality. You may return to a painting when its done and redo specific areas over and over again. You can build up layers of paint like an oil painter working on a canvas, and then take them off to reveal the white of the sheet. Remember that water activates the paint, even paint put down months ago. Allow YUPO to dry completely. Spray YUPO with a matte-clear finishing spray to seal and protect it. Only use a sealant when your work is complete, as rework and touch-ups become difficult to do after sealing.
