Watercolor Flowers on Yupo Paper


This Yupo paper is very interesting to paint on.. The paper does not absorb the paint, it sits on the surface until it dries.  The paper is translucent (like vellum) but does not wrinkle when you paint on it.  The flowers in the middle were painted on it and then the picture was taped on to the background.  I'm linking this one over at the Butterfly Effect.

Yupo is really fun. Although a bit pricey. I had to buy mine online too. I used Blick Art supplies. Amy, have you tried using it?
