We played with Yupo again in Pat's class today. I was really excited, because I've been watching Mark Mahaffey's video on doing watercolor on Yupo. I've even ordered some Yupo paper, so that I can make the amazing abstracts "just like his"! Oh yeah, in my dreams!! Anyway, it was fun to make the background all swirly like his, but then I couldn't come up with what to do next! So, I decided that it needed fish. But, it was great fun, and I'm still looking forward to my Yupo papers to get here.
Now, I have a question for you -- I've been making lots of bookmarks (see last post), and I've been spraying them with fixatives (I've tried 2 different ones) - and even 3 days later, they still smell like the spray! Does anyone know of a good fixative for watercolor paper that won't continue to smell? I used this stuff on my acrylic canvases, and no smell. I'm hoping that the smell will go away before the art shows! Help!
