OK, X is for experimental or some such.

This is multi-media, sumi-e (Brushed ink on "rice" paper) then chalk pastels added for color, then "fixed" by brushing linseed oil on the back, which penetrates the paper locking, binding, both the ink and pastels. The linseed oil leaves the paper somewhat translucent. The painting is sitting atop blank, white stock and the black back cloth is visible showing through the sides beyond the edge of the white sheet behind the painting.

Since I paint purely for pleasure, not for profit nor posterity, I can afford to experiment (GRIN) although I suspect that drawing I do in ink, charcoal and/or pastels that I 'fix' with linseed oil are as archival as any oil painting.
