Playing with Stencils and Transparent 62# Yupo

Inspired by Cathy Taylor’s Pigments of Your Imagination”  I decided to try Working with Stencils on 62# Yupo paper.

I’ve always been attracted to this stencil with aspen treesHere’s the link to purchase this stencil – $6.


Tree Stencil smlr

I took a 6×6 sheet of 62# Yupo, placed the stencil on top and started blotting with Watermelon, Honeycomb, and Botanical.  It was cool to see the ink puddle under the stencil.  I pushed the bubbles around and then left it to dry.

The image was revealed by pulling the stencil off.  It was tacky for a couple of hours.


I’ve always wondered about the 62# Yupo. How see through is it?  I placed the aspens on several different mat board and you could really see the difference as the color from the mat changed the image.  Click through the slide show to see the results:

Any opinions?  I’m sure some of you will come up with new ideas how to layer sheets of 62# Yupo Paper.
