Sumi Ink Stick

Qualifies for flat-rate shipping!

For more than a thousand years the method of making the Sumi ink stick has remained the same. Soot from and certain vegetable oils mixed with animal or fish glue is molded and dried to form a well shaped, solid block which, when ground on a suzuri stone with water, turns into ink. It is unsurpassed for producing the five colors, the shades of black which are the basis of "monochromatic" Sumi Painting.

The 7 oz Black Sumi Ink Stick is geared to the Student Artist and the 9 oz Black Sumi Ink Stick is for the Professional Artist.
