Broaden your watercolor experience as we experiment with a new watercolor technique (similar to alcohol ink on tile). This method is more accessible and affordable as we work with YUPO® paper. Learn why watercolor artists love this paper, tips for using it, techniques using plastic bags, salt, blowing or dripping, and what a different and vibrant effect your work will have when done on this paper. When painting on YUPO® paper, the watercolors are not lost in the paper...they float on top and playfully interact. When the colors dry, they are as vivid as they are when wet! Come experiment with us and explore the possibilities of what can be done on YUPO® paper!

Coptic Stitch Book Binding - 311977

Welcome to Coptic Stitch Bookbinding! Learn how to make a Coptic stitch book which can be used as a sketchbook, scrapbook, journal, or photo album. This type of binding doesn’t require any glue (just pins, needles and thread) and it lays completely flat, so you can scan sketches easily and bring them to life. This traditional book has a flexible spine, unsupported by paper or boards, just connected by threads. If you only use two holes, make it small; or add more holes to support a larger book…use any number of holes, odd or even. This method is very popular – you might have even seen this type of binding because of the exposed stitching in the spine. The options, once you learn the technique, are endless!
