I also suspect that Yupo is a much more permanent base than paper,
if archival quality is of any importance.

I have used Yupo as a base for making carbon tissue and in this
application it works very well. I have also attempted to print on it
with kallitype and palladium but with mixed results. If one could
make it work with these processes I think the results might be very
interesting since it is such a smooth support and would probably
allow more sharpness than even vellum.

BTW, in the US you can buy Yupo from Cheap Joe's Art Stuff in Boone, NC.
