Beautiful dense color : A joy to work with !

I use this ink for my drawing work and it is wonderfully black,yet it dries fast and can be watercolored if needed. It also blends nicely with a little water to create grey tones and it is my absolute favorite ink to work with. I use all sizes of brushes and this ink is great with all of them.

my favorite sumi ink!
i am partial to this sumi ink; as when it dries, it still has a nice "shine" to it, so it gives the impression that it was truly written with a calligraphy pen. very smooth to write with, as well. all around favorite ink.
from LA, CA
I bought this for ink wash paintings. The ink could be darker, but other than that it's great.
This ink is divine-- dark darks and light lights-- anything is possible!
By Martha's Black Jade
from Shawmut, ME
I have used this ink on fine handmade Chinese Xuan paper for Asian ink painting as well as using it for practice work on newsprint. As it is both a high quality bottle sumi (black ink) as well as very reasonably priced, it fits both my needs. The black is deep and glowing, like a beautiful black lacquer; and the ink is both stable and consistent. There is stabilizer added to bottle ink and the results of any bottled ink cannot ultimately absolutely equal that of a fine ink stick ground just prior to painting. There is a brittle clarity to properly ground ink that is inimitable. However, the Japanese have done an extremely fine job of creating very fine bottle ink and many ink painters now choose to use it, usually as a time-saving convenience.
Sumi inks are in general some of the richest blacks around, and the price to pigment load is solid. I often cut other materials with sumi to improve the blacks or to bring contrast against the blacks produced by those media. Note that even tho this is waterproof, sometimes when applied over other media it will remain fugitize, especially when applied over paint. Seems to be fixed by different mixtures and varnishings, but I still have a lot of experimentation to do.
Best for beginners, for class,best intense tinting strength
