I've been testing out Yupo's new paper, Octopus and comparing it to the other Yupo papers for Legion Papers. I did several tests using alcohol inks first.  Each sample was done with the same three Adirondack Alcohol Ink colors but on different types of Yupo paper.

Then I tried watercolor. I used the same drawing and the same color palette. Although with watercolor the differences are more subtle, again, notice the difference that the paper makes.

I am curious, which version do you like the best?

I photographed and started sealing about 60 paintings on Yupo paper today. Attached is a photo showing how I seal my watercolors on Yupo.

I had two defective cans of Kamar varnish that came out like silly string! They are sending me new cans and claim that once sprayed again, the surfaces will even out.

 I will be adding more tips to this page soon.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
Have a great day and happy creating!
