Welcome to dickblick
Yupo is a compelling and unique alternative to traditional art papers. It's a synthetic paper, machine-made in the USA of 100% polypropylene. It is waterproof, stain resistant, and extremely strong and durable.
This extraordinary, non-absorbent surface resists tearing and buckling and remains perfectly flat, eliminating the need for soaking, stretching, or taping.
Watercolor professionals have found Yupo to be receptive to a variety of aqueous techniques, but it is also ideal for offset printing, silkscreen, debossing, drawing, acrylic painting, and more.
Choose Bright White or Translucent sheets. Pigments applied to the Bright White sheet retain their true clarity and brilliance while the Translucent sheet allows for special layered effects and tracing.
Yupo is pH-neutral, flawlessly smooth, and recyclable.
Because of the unique qualities of this paper, dirt and oils hinder its performance. We recommend removing spots and fingerprints with soap and water before use.
Pads are tape bound on the short side.
Heavyweight Watercolor Paper Pads
The heavyweight, 144 lb (390 gsm) paper in Yupo Heavyweight Watercolor Pads is incredibly strong with a very smooth surface. Its heavier weight makes it more resistant to buckling and warping. Pads contain 10 sheets of paper.

I love Yupo!
from Sisters, Oregon
Comments about Yupo Watercolor Paper Pads:
I use Yupo for alcohol ink paintings and for watercolor paintings. I love the flow of both mediums on the Yupo. I particularly like the white rather than the transparent for my uses. The pads are convenient, but the whole sheets are great to, just harder to find.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I'm grateful for Dick Blick
I live in rural Mn. There are no art supplies stores. I heard of yupo painting and wanted to try it. My order to Dick Blick was delivered promptly and I was able to use it. I'm very pleased.

Best medium for alcohol inks
Yupo paper doesn't warp with watercolor
from ogden utah
It needs to be mailed in a box because the mailman rolled it a bit and stuffed it in the mailbox. Fortunately it gradually flattened out.
Great for more than just watercolors

I had used Yuppo paper in the past with watercolors but not with acrylic paint. The colors remained very vibrant after drying. It was fun trying a nontraditional medium on this kind of paper.
