    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.

    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!

    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.
