comment: ‘this is a high grade paper. However, it is better to leave the paper for several months to leave the ‘paper fire’ disappear so that the paper can reach the best performance.’

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

  2. Craftsmanship is mastery!
    It is a real pleasure to only hold this paper in your hands, see and feel it.
    I will take in account the above mentioned advice of Gongbi Artist Huang Guo Hong and am anxious to know what this paper will teach me in a few months time.

  3. The XUAN-Paper is very nice. For some paintings I prefer the back (has a little bit more “structure”.)
