Glass Xuan (Shuen) is a fully sized Xuan paper.
Sized Xuan is custom-made for the Fine-line (Gong-bi) School of Painting. Sizing reduces absorbency. The sizing gives the artist the ability to apply layer after layer of color.
As its name suggests, Glass paper offers a smooth and consistently non-absorbent surface on which to paint. This paper handles repetitive shading with consummate ease. This paper is similar to Shimmer Xuan! Past batches of Glass paper have been off white, cream-like color with no residual signs of a sparkle.
