Yupo weaving

Making the backgrounds is so much fun on yupo.  Watching the colors blend into each other
or manipulating the paint with witches cloth, cheese cloth or acrylic webbing just
fascinates me.
Then I have to decide what to do with the end product.  
Here I cut up the painting and wove it into itself.  Previously I had woven it
into strips of white paper.  Here I glued the strips together and then made a 
wonky spiral stencil to use with white paint on top.
I think if the colors were more earthen, the effect would be more primitive 
which is what I was after.  Oh well, maybe next week.
Happy PPF


  1. Fantastic, I so love the effects you have created here. Happy PPF, hugs, Valerie

  2. a brilliant way to use your yupo papers! This actually looks like cloth to me. Happy PPF!

  3. How beautiful this is, Susan!

  4. I love these blues, and the touch of pink in there. Great way to use your yupo-papers!

  5. Yupo?! Ack! Another thing I have NO idea about. OK--off to look this up. Love the photo. xo

  6. Such an interesting technique. That requires a lot of patience, which I don't have but you obviously do have! Great blues!

  7. i've used Yupo before...i find it hard to paint on with watercolor. But it does give interesting results. i love this weave that you've done!!

  8. I love how this has turned out...really beautiful and I love the colours together too!! It would make a fabulous wall hanging! I prefer this to primitive myself!!
