AS FEATURED ON: Blitsy - How To Get A Resist Pattern On Yupo

Who has been having fun with Yupo? I've been trying it out with different techniques and materials to see what it can do, you have most likely seen people using it with Alcohol inks, which it is perfect for, but you can use it with all sorts of materials.

I've talked about Yupo before here on my blog, but in case you have missed that, Yupo is a paper format made from polypropylene, so it is waterproof and non-absorbent. Unlike the natural fibre paper that we are more commonly used to, colour tends to sit on the surface of Yupo which makes it very blendable, often for a lot longer then when using on ordinary papers. The colours also look extra vivid on white Yupo and really pop.

For my latest experiments on Yupo I've been playing with a great way to make a resist that works on the synthetic paper. For this resist I used a china marker pencil and tried it with both watercolour and alcohol ink then shared how I did it and the results over on the Blitsy blog in my 'How To Get A Resist Pattern On Yupo' blog post.

If your are looking for more Yupo ideas I've also got a tutorial using acrylic paint on Yupo on the Blitsy blog.

The texture you can make with the different colouring materials is wonderful! I'm still kind of fascinated by this paper, it is going to be fun watching all the different ways that people will think to use it in our mixed media world.

How about you? Have you got into it yet?
