WHAT THIS CATEGORY IS ABOUT
With all these different options of Chinese rice paper available it might be difficult to make the right choice, we tried to anticipate this and therefore created a smaller category within the Chinese paper category which we refer to as the "Specialist Paper" category.
With the Chinese Shuen papers found here, we want to cater to Oriental papers and calligraphers who are in need of a high quality expert paper which specifically matches their need without having to spend a lot of time trying different types of paper until they found the paper which best matches their painting technique or usage. Therefore, we were aiming to keep this category of Chinese rice paper small and clear by just adding five different paper types which are designed for a very clear purpose.
One of our paper mills produces special Chinese artwork papers which are specifically designed to fit different brush painting techniques and calligraphy.
Consequently, there are only 5 paper types in this category - two kinds of specialist papers for Landscape painting - one being single Shuen, the other one two-sheet Xuan paper.
Then there is an expert paper for calligraphers, the "Calligraphy Specialist", one paper specially designed for flower and bird painting finally one premium Chinese Shuen paper dedicated specially to fineline painting.
