Am loving the color...

I have been playing around with color the last couple of weeks.
Initially, I used dye on watercolor paper for a nice vivid result

After some negative glazing,  I was pleased with the result.
And then I switched to yupo.
This is a completely new experience for me and the color.

Interesting how the color reacts.

Oh, I am really liking how the color worked here.
There are some beautiful interactions.
I think I need to try some more yupo
Not sure where I go from here but I love the color reactions.
Maybe some of you have had some experience on yupo.
I would love to hear about it.
Wishing you a Happy PPF

  19. What is Yupo? You have achieved some very interesting colour mixes with it. In your pictures it looks stringy, or is that some sort of resist you have used? Please explain your process and what Yupo is.

  21. What fun! I love the 3rd piece. I've never heard of yupo but plan to do a lot of indigo and procion MX dyeing this summer so I'll have to do some research on yupo and find out what that's all about. Thanks for the inspiration.
