YUPO 5 x 7 inch pad-white heavyweight YUPO Synthetic Papers are extruded from polypropylene pellets. The process of extrusion occurs in their quarter-mile long manufacturing facility located in Chesapeake, Virginia. The various grades, weights and thicknesses of YUPO are spun into spools in lengths from 725 yards to 7, 500 yards, which are cut in to widths from 6 to 66 inches. YUPO is the 100 percent recyclable, waterproof, tree-free Synthetic Paper with attributes and properties that make it the perfect solution for a variety of marketing, design, packaging and labeling needs. Artists know that Yupo gives them an amazingly beautiful canvas to work with. Its smooth, bright white opaques and translucent give fine artists a medium that always goes big. This non-paper paper has become a best selling and most popular "alternative" watercolor paper. A synthetic (polypropylene) substrate is born with a non-porous surface that repels water. Yupo gives visual artists an amazingly beautiful canvas to work with. Its bright white, smooth finish gives artists the flexibility to work in several different mediums to achieve unique and creative results. Painting or drawing on the ultra-smooth surface of YUPO is different than regular watercolor or drawing paper, and will require some adjustments by the artist. The surface may be wiped clean to restore the original white of the sheet, making it an excellent surface for beginners. YUPO is also a very exciting substrate for more advanced and experimental artists. Its creative possibilities and suitable applications are infinite. Yupo - a slick, smooth, non-absorbent substrate that dramatically changes the way you paint, print or draw. Using this sheet, you can capture nuances, patterns, and shapes that were previously impossible to achieve on conventional watercolor and drawing papers. What makes it even more unique is its lifting quality. You may return to a painting when its done and redo specific areas over and over again. You can build up layers of paint like an oil painter working on a canvas, and then take them off to reveal the white of the sheet. Remember that water activates the paint, even paint put down months ago. Allow YUPO to dry completely. Spray YUPO with a matte-clear finishing spray to seal and protect it. Only use a sealant when your work is complete, as rework and touch-ups become difficult to do after sealing.
