Postcard pack contains 10 pieces. Paper has a blur degree of 3. Absorbs water moderately well and can be used for calligraphy, drawing, letters, etc.

Wouldn't it be great to share your artwork with friends in a convenient way? These Japanese postcards are made of special paper that is perfect for drawing on. The special art pieces can be then sent to special friends to brighten their day. Each postcard paper is suited for different drawing purposes and carries a different blur degree. "Blur" refers to the blending capability of the paper, or its degree of absorbency that allows colors to blur on the paper. The degree of blur is ranked from one (least) to five (most). Low degrees are suitable for calligraphy and letters, high degrees are beautiful for watercolors and painting.

These are excellent postcards...
Verified Purchase
These are excellent postcards for doing etegami, especially for beginners.
For a paper intended for etegami, they have a minimal level of "bleed" so your ink and your watercolor will be a little difficult to control, but the effect for etegami is quite lovely and charming.
Please bear in mind that this paper is not intended for traditional western-style watercolor painting. The previous commenter said that the paper made the watercolor blotchy -- that is quite true. The paper is meant to be used for etegami, where there traditionally a "
"runniness" to the paint. The quality of the paper is delicate, meant to enhance the "bleed" of ink and watercolor.

Blotchy, crappy, absorbs...

Blotchy, crappy, absorbs water terribly, and I do really LIGHT washes for watercolor postcards, i'm horribly disappointed i've loved 95% of the things i've ordered from jet pens, but this is not one of them.
