Once you have tried yupo you will love it. Was introduced to it at CHA in January but had not tried it until Tim's Creative Chemistry 103 ... I love it love the feel of it and how the alcohol inks work on it.
I didn't realize that alcohol ink needed special paper. I tried the inks on some photo paper I had. It gave some results but the ink didn't move like the videos were saying it would. I got some beautiful background papers even though the paper was more porous. I am excited to try the yupo paper... it will be a whole new experience. I can't possibly imagine loving the alcohol ink technique more than I do now, but it looks like this paper could be magical.
