Alcohol Ink Landscape on Yupo

I don't know how I missed posting this earlier. When I was getting ready to teach the alcohol ink class I tried painting on yupo with the alcohol inks. In case you don't know...yupo is a synthetic paper which is sort of like painting on plastic. I've painted on it before with watercolors, but they puddle much more than the alcohol inks and dry much slower. I liked using the inks on the yupo and hope to do more of these. This is 5 x 7.

  3. I love your experiments with Yupo and alcohol inks! I've been trying out a little sketchbook made with Yupo pages. . .very weird paper! It works well with pencil and ballpoint, but most pens take forever to dry.
