They make a translucent too. Some interesting backlit paintings have been done with it.
I stand corrected then, I've never looked for translucent, always just assumed it was always white, just different weights. - Thanks Nada, that means I've learnt something today so its a good day..... but I know Squishy isn't translucent
that would actually be pretty cool, almost a stained glass effect
Dry recommended Golden polymer Varnish for his paper
@Squishy how long did it take to get your paper sample? Haven't seen nothing as yet.
@jord001 tbh I'm not sure, but I think only around a week? Maybe a bit longer.
I've put in another request, just got the yupo 5 x 7 booklet i brought, it's 200gsm so quite thick. Testing very soon..
Yes, I need to do further tests, but haven't got around to it yet. I want to prep with alcohol and see what the difference is.
Prep wih alcohol? what's that do then? What's the technique to doing it?
Just give the board a wipe with isopropyl to remove any grease from fingers. Dust /substances from manufacturing and handling getting it to you.
I use latex make up pads (cheap as to get from the dollar store) pour some isopropyl on there and gently wipe
Treat it as a hard surface until you get some paint on there.
You could try other fluids like denatured alcohol
I found the Yupo super delicate, with paint super easy to wipe off. Jackie told me about the alcohol and I'm hoping it gives it a little more tooth, but still keeps its other good properties.
I like aaalot
I got an envelope from premier paper today, haven't opened it yet and also got some paper samples from G.F. Smith too, i emailed them. Not sure what they have sent. Fingers crossed.
Wipe on, wipe off, a degreasing,. I want to try that as well, the stuff seems to pick up grease easy and fisheye...
Hey nice work and good write up @Squishy
