Today, I experimented some more on YUPO paper...like I have mentioned before, it is addicting.  I tried the addition of salt and droplets of rubbing alcohol, which has a drastic effect on the paint.  Wow!  For a while they looked like barnacles and then craters on the moon and finally , to me, outer space...sort of like the photos from the Hubble telescope.  I just had to add a little whirlygig for interest! :)

Love all of your experiments! Neat that you can do all ofthis ,a nd still have your results stay "clean" and clear. What fun!
