This Shuen paper is proven to produce beautiful color and smooth delivery of strokes. It is thicker than our single-ply xuan and thinner than our Jade Plate. The color shows well for light to dark gradations and is easier to control your moisture for those starting out.
Paper can also be used as an alternative to "Zen," but note the paper is quite a bit thinner.
Double Shuen is great for other subjects such as plants, animals and low-moisture landscapes.
Shuen Paper (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.
We carry many variations of raw shuen paper, each with their own unique characteristics. For beginners we recommend our Double Shuen paper.
