Yupo paper is a unique alternative to traditional art papers. It's an incredibly durable, stain-resistant, non-absorbent surface that holds a wide variety of solvent based and watersoluble inks, markers and paints with precision. It can even be cleaned off when using watercolours so you can start again! Types of Yupo include translucent, white and heavyweight, each in various sizes.
Tim Holtz and Ranger Ink have personalised their Legion Paper packaging to coordinate with the whole Alcohol Ink range of products.
Solvent based inks (whether bottles of colour or marker refills) work beautifully on this non-porous surface with many artists creating galaxies, marbled backgrounds, floral masterpieces and landscapes. Just be sure to use alcohol and solvent based inks in a well ventilated area.
While solvents set quite fast, waterbased mediums may take a bit longer... but they do dry eventually and the effects are beautiful.
