Yupo Synthetic Papers
Yupo Synthetic Papers are neither natural paper nor plastic film. Instead, they combine and surpass the benefits of both. Made of 100% polypropylene, Yupo offers a unique alternative to traditional art papers.
Waterproof and stain-resistant, it is exceptionally strong, durable and will not buckle or tear. It is acid-free, archival and has a smooth surface with a matte lustre. It accommodates silkscreen, embossing, pen & ink, drawing, acrylic painting, alcohol inks and watercolor. As a watercolor paper, it has the advantage of being non-absorbent so colors lie on top of its surface producing brilliant, vibrant effects. Colors retain their true clarity and brilliance.
Yupo is machine-made in the USA, recyclable and tree-free. Yupo requires no soaking, stretching, or taping flat. Mistakes are not costly - just wipe off unwanted sections of your painting and start again with a fresh surface.

Paper available from Store Pickup only.
FLAX art & design is a genuine Oakland institution. Opening their first store in 1938, they're now on their 3rd generation of family ownership and have recently relocated to a beautiful new Downtown location that could best be described as a "toy store for artists." 80 years in and they're still putting art and community front and center. You can visit them at their own site here, or find more of their products right here on Keep Oakland Alive.
