INKSTON Expert Calligraphy Xuan paper contains 65 to 75% Pteroceltis Tatarinowii tree bark, it is untreated/unsized (raw/uncooked in Chinese) and is suitable for both painting and calligraphy, especially recommendable for calligraphy.

Expert Calligraphy Xuan paper is made with Pteroceltis Tatarinowii which is only steamed and boiled once. Extra work is done on the pulp production to make the paper finer and stronger than normal Xuan Paper. When the paper is just made, it is untreated/unsized (raw/uncooked in Chinese) . However, after two months, the paper will have the same features as half-cooked Xuan Paper. This makes the paper perfect for calligraphy use. Since this paper is only made with Pteroceltis Tatarinowii and rice straw, the paper can be kept forever.

This is fine 39gsm paper, in large 138x70cm size (I sheet has a surface area equivalent to 15 sheets A4).

Available in pack sizes:

  • 25 sheets half-width (0.43kg net weight)
  • 25 sheets (0.85kg net weight)
  • 50 sheets (1.7kg net weight)

    Good quality double Xuan paper. The paper is smooth with good weight, and bleeds just enough when used for landscape work.

    i received this sample pack with my order, i didn’t think it will have so many papers and it was a very pleasant surprise.
    i tried some and will try the rest and it will help me to know which paper to order for my art.
    i am very happy that i discovered Inkston store.

  • Le papier extra fine landscape est de très belle qualité. Il permet de très fines nuances de gris tout en restituant les couleurs de l’encre avec un grande intensité. Un rapport qualité prix imbattable.

    Ce papier peu absorbant est de très belle qualité. Il convient parfaitement pour la peinture , notamment en style lignan.

    First things first. I want to recommend Inkston.com shop for one big reason – communication with customers is on the one really high level. That’s really important when you are a beginner and you don’t know what product is good for you at the moment. One thing that impressed me is that Yan is not just seller but also a really good expert on Chinese Art and History. So, when you ask something you don’t get just answer about that product but also one short class in the history of art. Second thing is that Yan is the one really friendly person that answer you on all of your questions, messages, and emails. That shows us that in Inkston.com you are not just one of many customers, but they see you as a friend of art and friend of Inkston.com store. So, they don’t make just business, but also the friends around the world.
    After this short introducing in Inkston I can talk about paper. I am practicing calligraphy little more than one year. After the struggle with good brushes, the most annoying thing was finding good paper for calligraphy. I wanted to buy some suitable paper for practice for this time. So, I asked Yan about some recommendations and tips about the paper. I got one really interesting answer: “Let me send you samples of paper that we have, so you can choose what paper is best for you.” That’s something that impressed me the most. After a short time, I got more than twenty samples of different papers. For the first time, I had in my hand’s real Chinese paper for calligraphy. I can say that feeling paper under fingers is really important for a calligrapher. With your fingers, you will decide what paper is most suitable for your calligraphy style, technique and so on.

    Now I want to talk about Red Star paper that I bought. I bought Red Star practice paper. I heard about famous Red Star brand for traditional calligraphy paper from China earlier. Actually, I didn’t expect much from some paper for practice. But, when I got my package I was impressed how good quality this paper is. First whitens of paper is same. That’s really important because it says that thickness of the paper is same, which is really important when you do calligraphy. Most of the paper that you can buy in other stores are cheap and manufactured paper with so many damages. And they just sell you paper like this. With Inkston and Red Star, you can’t get some paper with damages because they care about the reputation. Red Star cares about the reputation of Chinese heritage and Inkston about the reputation of their store. Next thing that’s important is that on Inkston sell original Red Star paper with original watermark.

    After I tested paper for few days I can recommend this paper for all beginners in Chinese calligraphy and painting. The price of paper is reasonable and paper is suitable for beginners. Of course, the delivery of the product is impressive and without the possibility to be damaged during the shipping.

    Recommended for others who want to experiment
    These are samples not for large paintings but for the price and to try the different varieties of paper, I was more than pleased.
    I used several for small paintings which are now in a show. I would order again and would recommend it to others who want to experiment.

    Your sample packet was very nice with a huge selection of papers. I wish the paper size was a little bit larger to allow more testing of specific brushwork, but I really appreciate that the sample wasn’t small! Your sample packaging is very classy and looks very professional, and the inclusion of the comparison table is great!

    With my order I received a sample pack. It taken some time till I scathed and tried all of them. Generally it was a very instructive, and the difference between a machine made Xuan papers (I knew these before) and these papers are like chalk and cheese! The papers attributes was a important discovery for me, and there is a distinctive difference between painting and writing papers. Aside from obvious attributes, like softness, thickness, colour.
    These attributes are:
    Thirst, how much a paper keeps the brush stroke and keep the ink contain, preserving gestures from your brush.
    Flow, how much you can move the ink and water on the paper, how long you can alter it before it becomes permanent.
    (All Xuan papers are super absorbent, but there are differences.)
    Painting papers have more flow, writing papers have more thirst, but I found interesting mixtures in both type.
    Thank you for this wonderful experience. It really helped me getting ideas which papers I would like to paint with.
    I would even recommend some for European aquarelle paintings.

    Papier, keine Bürste Verified Purchase
    Die Artikelbeschreibung hier in Amazon ist nicht ganz richtig. Es handelt sich um Papier, nicht um eine Bürste. Aber die Papiermenge und Qualität ist für diesen Preis absoluter Hammer.

    magnifique
    Ce papier est magnifique, il était parfaitement emballé. Il a un coté lisse et un coté plus duveteux comme en général le papier de calligraphie. La couleur est blanche laiteuse, j’adore et je vous le conseille. De plus Inkston a rajouté des informations concernant la provenance la fabrication la composition le tout en anglais mais cela ce comprend facilement. On voit que ce papier est fabriqué artisanalement, on voit la trame tout en finesse. C’est un papier qui va boire, je ne l’ai pas encore essayé mais cela se sent au touché. Je l’adore et vous le conseille, en plus il est d’un bon rapport qualité/prix.

    Papier de qualité
    Je l ai testé je travaille pour la première fois dessus. Et j ai compris que n étant pas traité il faut être vigilant en ce qui concerne l’aplat du pinceau
    Appuyer avec légèreté afin que l eau ne s’étende pas plus qu’il ne faut
    J’adore sa transparence et le résultat final est très satisfaisant que ce soit à l encre ou à l aquarelle
