Yupo Explored...- By Jo Dunnick
YUPO is a recyclable, waterproof, tree-free synthetic paper that is extruded from
polypropylene pellets and manufactured into various grades weights and thicknesses and is commonly used for labels and packaging because it is super smooth, durable, waterproof and will not tear. It can also be used with watercolors and gives a unique alternative to traditional watercolor papers. All the pieces in my March watercolor exhibition were painted on Yupo allowing the paintings to be vibrant, free flowing or precise... and always react in ways that are unique to Yupo.
Please enjoy this exhibition of Yupo... and know that at any time I could take the painting to the sink, wash it off and try again!
Plus new work from members of the Emerald Art Center.
