Glass Shuen is a fully sized Shuen paper. Sized Shuen is custom-made for the Fine-line [Gong-bi] School of Painting. Sizing reduces absorbency. The sizing gives the artist the ability to apply layer after layer of color.
As its name suggests, Glass paper offers a smooth and consistently non-absorbent surface on which to paint. This paper handles repetitive shading with consummate ease. This paper is similar to Shimmer Shuen! In the paper, Glass paper has been off white, cream-like color with no residual signs of a sparkle. However, our present batch is white and has a notable glisten.
Although glass paper is featured in Ning Yeh's video for marbling, our last batch that we stocked was not taking the marbling colors featured in our product line due to the sizing on the paper. However, our present batch has been tested and takes the color well. It's great for student use to do Fine Line "Gong-bi" style of painting
