Yupo with Pinata' (alcohol based paint)

Hello everyone!
I wanted to share with you my latest paintings. Have been experimenting with this fun medium for about 6 months now. People just love them.
Hard to photograph though. They are so shinning, that the flash bounces off them. Size is 5 x 7 on Yupo with alcohol based paints called Pinata'. Any C & C's welcome!

Very interesting! I bet they are vibrant in real life, too! I'd love to explore one up close.

I've never heard of the paint- Though I like it's effect on the Yupo...

I like the second painting. It has such different elements in their very different sized. The painting works very alive, it has movement and energy, very fresh mood and nice abstract shapes.
Greetings!

Thanks for the comments Andrew and Vera!
This product has some very vibrant and beautiful colors. I only have a small set at this time, but will be purchasing more colors to help get more of a rainbow of colors. The effects on the Yupo are very interesting. Hard to control, but by using different simple items some cool effects can be made.

knowing little about these, are the paints archival, readily available and all.

Re: Yupo with Pinata' (alcohol based paint)

I love the look of alcohol inks and paints. I've been recommending them to my daughter for their transparency, although I'm not sure how well they'll adhere to the substrate she wants to use. Thanks for sharing your pieces...they just reminded me of why I love alcohol inks

Re: Yupo with Pinata' (alcohol based paint)

These paints can be purchased from several places, Blick, Darma and MisterArt on line. Blick has them in their store, but limited to a sample starter kit.

Here is what MisterArt has on its website about the product:
Pinata' by Jacquard are indelible, intense, color saturated, transparent, acid-free, alcohol-based colorants. Use these vibrant colors in a variety of applications, including leather and marble-like faux finish backgrounds, rubber stamping, fiber arts, calligraphy, glass painting and airbrushing. Use Piñata on paper, glass, plastic and metal just to name a few surfaces. Highly adaptable, these colors can also be mixed with a variety of other products to produce unique color blending.
Thank you both for the comments.
Deb
