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 without the glisten!
Although glass paper is featured in Ning Yeh's video for marbling, our current batch that we have in stock isn't taking the marbling colors well due to the sizing on the paper. It's still great for student use to do Fine Line "Gong-bi" style of painting, but it currently isn't taking color as demonstrated in Ning's Marbling DVD. Please use any other of OAS's paper such as Double Shuen (Xuan), Pi, Ma, Dragon Cloud, etc.
