YUPO® Synthetic Mixed Media Paper
An ultra-smooth, slick, incredibly strong, non-porous polypropylene substrate that repels water. Work in several different mediums to achieve unique and creative results. Painting or drawing on this surface 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 or for advanced and experimental artists wanting to capture nuances, patterns, and shapes. Yupo exhibits a unique lifting quality so it is possible to redo specific areas over and over again, or 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 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.Material is 100% polypropylene, and is neutral pH, acid-free, waterproof, and recyclable. Can be used for acrylic or watercolor paints, alcohol inks, oil pastels, pencil, graphite, or printing techniques (monotype, offset, silkscreen).
