A couple of different yupo ideas

Water color yupo spiderweb.
I got some nice depth in this one.  It is two feet by three feet so it is quite large.
No plans for it yet but I had lots of fun doing it.
At the risk of sounding like a broken record, I love watching the colors mingle on yupo.
They have their own mind and their own plan, so the controller in me just has to let go.
That is a good exercise.

This was an acrylic dump on yupo paper.
Why the gears?  I have no idea.  I just think they are interesting looking.
So now when this dries, I want to add a dirty looking edge to it all...sort of like
my Dad's workbench or something.  Not sure how or why but I want it to look sort of sooty.
Any ideas?
Would love to hear.
In the meantime, thank you for your visit and Happy PPF!


  1. Looks like fun, love the spider's web effect of the first one. Happy PPF, hugs, Valerie

  2. All fabulous artwork... I still have no idea what yupo is!

  3. I may need to let go by playing with yupo:):) Really amazing patterns and colors! As for the soot I would sponge a waterproof permanent ink around it (like Staz-On ink pad) in a black and perhaps some sepia tone. Happy PPF!

  4. Oh, that really does look like a giant spiderweb. I wouldn't do anything else to it, just leave it as is!

  5. You do great art on Yupo. I have never even seen any Yupo, so I am in awe of what you have made.

  6. I have no idea what yupo is, but the effects look fascinating! Perhaps flick black ink or acrylic and then put another piece of paper on top while it is still wet and move it thereby smudging it?

  7. I have some yupo sitting in my draw and this makes me want to get it out and play with it... Just beautiful

  8. I had to Google yup of paper to know what you were talking about. I like your idea of making the gears look sooty like they were laying about in the garage.

  9. I love this!!! There is a lot you can do with Yupo and this is in the top. Well done

  10. Yupo is such a fun..and what you came up with looks fantastic!


I love hearing from you! Have a wonderful day and come back soon.
