A lift on yupo


My infatuation with yupo continues.
In this one I slapped down a thick water color wash, let it dry
and then used graphite paper to lay down my image.
From there, the fun begins.  You just wet and lift (with toilet paper) and your 
images emerges.  For the wetting I used a very stiff "scrubber" brush.
I found one for fabric that was quite small and really made the stripes easier.
Is anyone else out there enjoying yupo?  I would love to hear.
