This unsized, handmade, triple ply Xuan paper is specially ordered for those of you who favor multiply Xuan such as "double xuan" rice paper. In cotton white and fine texture, it is suitable for painting colorful flowers and birds, animals, and landscapes. Triple ply Xuan is more absorbent and less smearing than single ply Xuan rice paper. It works great for both beginning student and experienced watercolor artist, sumi and Chinese brush painting artists.
The best part I like it is it does not require further mounting. What I do is I would tape around the edges on a drawing board so it would not buckle, as in western watercolor papers. As a backing paper this triple-ply Xuan paper is perfect for both dry and wet mounting as a strong backing paper.
For printing, this triple-ply xuan workd great with Giclee printer, screen printing, etching, wood block printing etc. To see for example, artist johnny's beautiful lamp cover design printed on our triple Xuan paper.
