|Yupo Plastic Watercolour Paper Pads|
|These pads now feature a new cover, but rest assured the existing paper & formats remain the same.|
Yupo is a very unique, synthetic (polypropylene), non-porous surface that gives artists the flexibility to work in several different mediums to achieve unique & creative results. It's acid-free, non-absorbent surface allows colours to lie on top of the paper producing brilliant, vibrant effects.
Painting or drawing on this ultra-smooth surface is different than regular watercolour or drawing paper...we encourage you to experiment, as the applications are infinite! These pads lend themselves to watercolour, mixed media, alcohol based inks & markers, pen & ink, airbrush, fluid acrylic, collage, pencil/graphite, oil pastel & more. What makes them more unique is that water activates the applied waterbased mediums, even ones put down months ago. When you piece is done, allow Yupo to dry completely and spray it with a clear finishing spray to seal & protect once work is complete.
Pads are available in white or translucent, of varying weights. Note that the heavier weight (200gsm) pads are ideal for thicker built up applications like gouache & acrylic paint. Also available in single sheets.
