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.

Really excellent product for alcohol ink paintings.
I love Yupo paper!
I'm using my new Yupo with Alcohol inks and I am having so darn much fun I can't stop doing it. I found one that I had done where I wasn't happy with my work, so I just used blending solution on it again and all that disappeared and I had a whole new look that was usable. Amazing actually. I have even framed a couple of my projects now just to show off my very first ones. Next die cutting it. Haven't tried that yet.

Painting on yupo is "magical"
from Pocatato, Idaho
I love the "magical" effects of mixed watermedia on Yupo, especially with Brusho.
yupo is a great painting surface
from New Castle, PA
great surface for using alcohol inks! great fun!
from West Palm Beach, FL
Being a user of Crescent Illustration board I tired Yupo paper as an experiment. I found that in using acrylic and matte medium it will take a time for me to get use to the slick surface. Not sure I would give up the feel and absorption that I have with watercolor paper and board.
I hate watercoloring on paper. I usually use other surfaces. U fortunately most repel water. Yupo, lets the paint stay exactly where i lay it. Unfortunately. Seriously. Love this stuff. Its almost a new way to paint because of the ease of effecting the dried layers of paint. Really cool stuff. I recommend atleast trying it, and different mediums on it.
Decent price, nice product
I use alcohol inks on Yupo paper, and if I dont like what I've done, I can wipe it clean with plain alcohol. Not much I dont like!
from twentynine Palms
This has to be the best watercolor paper that I have come across, and I go through a lot of paper.l I would definitely buy again.It does take a while to dry, but it's worth it.
