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.

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.

The Yupo paper was just what I expected, and the price was one of the best I could find on the net. But what exceeded expectations was the super fast shipping from DickBlick! thanks to the whole team to make this great service happen!

Yupo paper is wonderful
from Kanab, Utah
I love working on Yupo paper. I found that the heavyweight is a little too thick to use with dies in my machine, but it cuts wonderfully on a paper cutter. I love how the ink moves so easily and it is fabulous using Gelatos. It's my favorite product to use right now as it always gives me lovely results. And if you don't like it, you can easily get the ink off or moved around till you do like it.

I wasnt expecting this to be a smooth type of paper. I was expecting normal watercolor paper. But I must have just missed that.
