What is yupo paper ?

Yupo paper is a synthetic water resistant paper. That means that when used with watercolor, your paint will dry only by evaporation and there will be no absorption by your paper (as would be with regular watercolor paper). This is why yupo paper will allow very nice textures to form while the paint is drying. Here is a close up of some of the effects you can obtain on yupo paper:
