This two-ply xuan (shuen) paper is proven to produce beautiful color and smooth delivery of strokes. This paper is our thickest raw xuan paper. The color shows well for light to dark gradations and is easier to control your moisture for those starting out.

Xuan Paper is the most popular paper in China among brush painters and calligraphers. It is the most sensitive of the rice papers, cheerfully displaying dynamic strokes and complex shade variations with translucent fluidity and original spontaneity.
