Art Postcards With Yupo Paper and Minx

Hi creative peeps! Kathy Adams here to share my project using Minx Shimmering Inks.  Yupo is synthetic paper, machine-made in the USA of 100% polypropylene. It has a non-absorbent surface, is waterproof, stain-resistant, and extremely strong and durable.  I tried a few techniques and learned a few things along the way. Yupo and Minx Art Postcards11

I love the idea of an art postcard to share with the world.  Since the Yupo paper is quite thin, I mounted the finished cards onto white card stock and stamped the back to make them post card ready.  Yupo and Minx Art Postcards1

Everything But The Kitchen Sink!



Kathy here today to play!  It’s all about techniques this month so I decided to use household products that most everyone has and see how they react to Art Anthology Colorations sprays. Here is what I used in my experimental play: 91% alcohol, sea salt, Citrasolv, baking soda and vinegar, and hydrogen peroxide.  Disclaimer: No people or animals were harmed in the creation of this blog post.




I used only the Colorations sprays because they are more fluid than the paints. I also used Yupo, which is a synthetic paper made from plastic.  It has a non-porous surface that allows the wet media to stay on the surface as opposed to a more porous surface like watercolor paper.  I wanted the elements to react to each other without losing them to the paper.

When I was done playing I cut out rectangles from my experiments and created a collage with them. So let’s get started experimenting!

So go make something and play with your art supplies! You never know what you will come up with!
