These rice papers are the greatest and finest quality for watercolour, printing, collage, paper craft, Chinese painting and book binding. Rice papers are handmade with methods dating back thousands of years. Acid free, they are the ideal materials for any kind of inks and colours. The paper has a unique absorbency, which allows easy expression of shades, dark ink and colours.

Main types of Xuan: 

Dan Xuan (One layer Xuan) for calligraphy and painting

Double Xuan (double thickness, twice the thickness and weight of Dan Xuan) = holds more moisture for paintings with lots of ink

Shu Xuan (Cooked / Hot Pressed Xuan) = less absorbant paper, less leakage effect for more detailed paintings

Sheng Xuan (Raw Xuan Paper) = best ability to absorb ink. for Calligraphy and Painting

Pi Zhi (Pi Paper, Mulberry paper or Washi) = stronger and thicker paper than Xuan paper. Machine-made.  Smooth texture, for calligraphy and sumi e/ Chinese paintings, and for mounting paper on Xuan.
