Hi friends! Today I will share tips and tricks for using Watercolor paint on Yupo paper. Yupo is a synthetic (plastic) paper that accepts many types of art media. All of the supplies I am using came in the May Smart Art box.
Yupo paper is not for everyone. I used to use it quite a bit for watercolor before I started my YouTube career. What I loved most was working in huge sheets and filling it with big beautiful washes of color. It is a very freeing medium but not for someone who want a lot of control in their work. I think it is a nice change of pace. Keep in mind it is not going to behave like typical watercolor paper. Don’t be discouraged when using it, you can always rinse it off if you are not happy with it. For that reason in might ne nice for children who tend to create a lot of art! Are you ready to give Yupo a try? Watch the video for handy tips!
