Turner, James – Fun with Yupo


Please bring your usual watercolor setup, including tube colors, pallet, brushes, etc.

Make sure you have at least one large (at least 1.5 or 2″ flat wash brush).

I recommend but do not require a set of Dr. PH. Martin’s Hydrus Fine Art Watercolors (available at Cheap Joe’s Art Stuff). These are concentrated liquid watercolors that work wonderfully with YUPO.  They are a bit pricey but you get a lot of watercolor for the money, which can be used in more traditional ways as well.

Several 4″ foam rollers (available at hardware stores, cheap/disposable).

Any stamps, stencils, texturing tools, etc you have.  I will have some of these as well.

A large tube/tub of black and/or white gesso.  I will have some of this as well.

YUPO – Any size/wt OK.  I like Cheap Joe’s 74 lb 20″x26″ which costs about $2.50/sheet and will have some for sale at the workshop.*

*Note:  The Gesso is only for the Abstract workshop and in relatively small amounts
