Description

YUPO has high preservability and is less liable to tear. The surface is smooth and resistant to water. The substrate is made from polypropylene which is resource and eco-friendly. (made from synthetic paper)

YUPO is highly compatible with resin paints such as acrylic, and it is ideal for painting by using pencils, Iwa-enogu (mineral pigments), or even metal leaf with animal glue. Oil paint can be easily painted on the paper by mixing with Gesso Ground. (For more details, please refer the attached explanation of sample results)

For maintaining artworks on YUPO, applying fixative is highly recommended. Both sides are paintable as there is no difference between the front and the back. Moreover, the ink or colors does not affect the other side.
