Vintage Double Shuen: Ning Yeh's Favorite Paper for Chinese Flower Painting

Our customers who have been with us a while will know this paper as Double Shuen SP. This is an aged batch of Double Shuen SP that we have in packages of 24 cut sheets (13.25"x18")

People who know rice paper will tell you, the older the better. The chemical processes that are used to make Shuen paper mellow over time and the paper becomes better at handling moisture, and shows wonderful color with smooth transitions.

Our latest attempt to replace this paper with a new batch have been unsuccessful. The quality is no longer available at this price point. If this size works for you and you enjoy Flower Painting, this would be an excellent paper to stock up on!

What's Better Than Happiness? How About Double Happiness!

Our large double happiness brush is one of the favorite brushes for people who do larger Chinese calligraphy work.

However, as we've seem in the last two of Ling Chi's Holiday subject videos on the Christmas Tree, and the Holiday Candle/Holly, she loves this brush for flower painting as well! She uses the long body of the brush for fuller petal strokes but then uses to tip for thinner details.

Great Brush for right now or for your Holiday Wishlist!
