INKSTON Expert Flower/ Bird Xuan Paper
£10.34 – £75.55
INKSTON Expert Flower/ Bird 45 Xuan paper contains 33-38% Pteroceltis Tatarinowii tree bark, it is untreated/unsized (raw/uncooked in Chinese) and has a tiny portion of added calcium, which makes the paper very sensitive to express different kinds of inks. Therefore, the paper is specially suitable for paintings of flowers and birds.
To make the Expert grade Xuan paper the fibres are steamed/boiled and the pulp mixed for longer than usual. This makes the paper finer and stronger than normal Xuan Paper.
