Let’s learn to paint with watercolour on Yupo paper. Karen has the tips and tricks you need to get started on this uniquely smooth paper.

But what is Yupo? Yupo is an intriguing and surprising alternative to cotton or pulp-based watercolour paper. It's a synthetic paper, machine-made of polypropylene. It is waterproof, stain resistant, and extremely strong and durable. If you haven’t tried it, you really should!
