Landscape Specialist-A Semi-Processed (Semi-Sized) Double Xuan Paper that is good for Calligraphy Writing, Sumi-e and Fineline Painting. It is especially good for painting LandscapePaper material: Shuen Paper
The Landscape Specialist is great for landscapes because it is a two-sheet thick piece of Xuan Paper, often known as Double Xuan.
After going through the normal process of Xuan paper, another step is added when the chemical substance alum (Ming Fan) is applied to the surface of the paper. This compound inhibits water from being absorbed by the paper, and when it is applied the paper becomes known as semi-processed. The Landscape Specialist has undergone this process making it perfect for landscapes.
The amount of water that can still be absorbed by the paper depends upon how much alum is applied. The Landscape Specialist has an intermediate absorbency, which also makes it great for Fineline (Gongbi) painting and East Asian Calligraphy, particularly if you are using Kai Shu, Zhuan Shu and Li Shu scripts.
