One thing that Bruce MacEvoy mentions is yupo for one of the
experiments and explains why watercolors look very luminous on
that substrate. It totally agrees with my observations and has
reignited my desire to experiment some more with yupo. I have some
nice prints and they just glow. Main problem with it is that gum
does not stick to it and it seems to be unpredictable in the way
it peels off and flakes. Sometimes patches will come off,
sometimes just spots.
Here are some prints
