What is Gasen-shi?
Gasen-shi is a general term for paper used in calligraphy. It is very easy to achieve a soft finish with this surface since the ink easily soaks into it which also makes the paper suitable for ink painting. To best enjoy the characteristics of Gasen-shi without worrying about the bleed-throughs, we offer our own Gasen-shi (Soft Watercolor Paper), which is fully bleed-proof allowing you to draw on both sides of the paper. The range of expression expands when it is used in combination with the Super Brush featured in Copic Sketch and Ciao. (Also available as a custom nib for Copic Classic).
