Welcome to dickblick
Mastering Yupo: Techniques for Synthetic Paper is a "must-see" for anyone working with synthetic paper, as National Gold Medal winner George James opens up the creative possibilities and eliminates the frustrations often associated with painting on Yupo.
James has developed a process that promotes predictable results and a creative flexibility unheard of on regular watercolor paper. In this DVD, he demonstrates his techniques for achieving variegated and smooth washes, lifting, ghosting, spattering, stamping, carving luminous darks, and lifting whites. He also shares his techniques for inventing rich surface textures and luminous dark passages.
James is generous with his knowledge and clearly explains the theory behind his every move, giving viewers the understanding of how to anticipate and create desired effects.

Really Good Yupo Watercolor DVD
By Late Blooming Artist
from Arlington, MA
Comments about Creative Catalyst Mastering Yupo DVD:
This DVD is wonderful. I was not too optimistic because I have about 3 years experience with Yupo but I wanted to refresh my practice with some new ideas, so I took a chance and ordered it. George James is a wonderful artist and he does a great job of demonstrating a number of techniques that I found both helpful and inspiring. The lessons are well organized, he is clear and articulate, and his demos are right on target... I will watch it several more times to pick up more details and technique.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Mastering Yupo is an inspiring video.
from Pittsburgh PA
Gorge James made painting with watercolor on Yupo paper an exciting video to watch. He thoroughly explained what he does and why, what can happen with the addition of water, stamping, and stencils. I really enjoyed the video and George's description of the process.
Dancing with Yupo is a fantastic DVD
This video is so inspiring and complete in its coverage of how to do a painting on Yupo paper with watercolor. Taylor shows her beautiful techniques and shares her artistic journey with the viewer,, making you want to start right in with your own experimentation with Yupo. I certainly did and am loving it's!

Yippy for Yupo
from West Hills, CA
Yupo paper is new material for me. I was hesitant about its uses and the video removed my worries. The watercolor artist was great and demonstrated a number of techniques such as stamping and blending that any artist can use. I suggest for future videos that he demonstrate alcohol inks on Yupo.

I found this instructional video easy to understand and informative. I would buy another dvd from this artist when one becomes available. I feel that there is enough right now to master and look foward to the next.
