Yupo is an extremely unique synthetic paper that holds ink with razor-sharp precision. It is made from polypropylene and it repels water. Yupo paper has a unique lifting quality, allowing you to redo areas over and over again. Printing projects and watercolors produce interesting results when used on Yupo. Lay down and pick up wet colors repeatedly, creating different layers. The smooth, bright white surface of Yupo is an amazingly beautiful surface for translucent paints. Water can reactivate dried watercolors, so use a fixative on any dried and finished Yupo work. Yupo is durable and resist tearing. 100 percent recyclable. Accepts diecutting, perforations and embossing.
