Yupo Synthetic Papers are neither natural paper nor plastic film. Instead, they combine and surpass the benefits of both. Made of 100% polypropylene, Yupo offers a unique alternative to traditional art papers.
Waterproof and stain-resistant, it is exceptionally strong, durable and will not buckle or tear. It is acid-free, archival and has a smooth surface with a matte lustre. It accommodates silkscreen, embossing, pen & ink, drawing, acrylic painting, alcohol inks and watercolor. As a watercolor paper, it has the advantage of being non-absorbent so colors lie on top of its surface producing brilliant, vibrant effects. Colors retain their true clarity and brilliance.
Yupo is machine-made in the USA, recyclable and tree-free. Yupo requires no soaking, stretching, or taping flat. Mistakes are not costly - just wipe off unwanted sections of your painting and start again with a fresh surface.
