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.
Handling Charge — When ordering sheets of paper or board larger than 18” x 24” in quantities of less than 10, a $3.00 per order handling fee applies. Paper or boards may be assorted to reach the quantity of 10.

Comments about Yupo Watercolor Paper:
The only other type of plastic paper I know of is photo paper, and Yupo does respond far better. Yupo is quite unique in fact. I sometimes use watercolor paints and other times alcohol inks, and it's a total blast. So many ways to use it. And Blick pricing is so reasonable.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

First time user of Yupo with alcohol ink...LOVE it!
By J McD
from Capistrano Beach, CA
It's non porous property allows me to manipulate the alcohol ink before it dries. It also allows the ink to be reactivated with pure alcohol.
Best price I have found, and quick delivery time,
from Brasstown, NC
I paint with alcohol Inks and Watercolors and teach both mediums. Dick Blick is my recommendation for where my students can order their paper.

Great deal for good quality
from Colorado Springs, CO
I've bought Yupi paper from other places that cost more and couldn't see a quality difference. I'm not a professional but for a hobbyist, this works great for a fraction of the cost.

Watercolor and India Ink
from Meridian, MS
I'm using the Yupo paper for watercolor and India ink. It's fun, fluid, and hard to stop playing with. And if I mess up I can wipe my paper clean and start over. Give it a try.
YUPO works for abstract painting

Yupo is great for watercolor so. The flow of colors is great!
from Harrisburg, PA
I cut my own, and getting this size is hard to find. Came packaged well without curls, wrinkles or damage. Very happy with this!
A Surface that is Fun!
from Reno, Texas
Yupo is great for alcohol inks, watercolor, and acrylics. I love the way alcohol inks move and mix on Yupo. It is a great surface to work with. I love to experiment while I am painting, and many times end up with a real mess. If I have worked on regular paper, I have to trash lots of failed experiments. Yupo can be used over and over until you get something you really like. That saves lots of paper. Mistakes are easily corrected, saving time and money. Yupo does require some getting used to, due to drying time and the non-porous surface.
Fun and Frustrating
from Amelia Island, FL
Ah the joy and pain of yupo. It's great if you are willing to let it do its own thing, but trying to control it to match your own vision is a challenge. I'm still learning the tricks, but with mixed results, which is fair for any new medium. I've had some interesting results I couldn't get with any other paper, so want to continue experimenting. Friends like using alcohol ink with it, but I am liking watercolor and even sumi-e ink better.
