Kuretake Ink Sticks

Kuretake “Saiboku Shimbi” is a coloured ink stick which demonstrates the beautiful, brilliant colours used in traditional Japanese style paintings. You can easily control ink density or blend colours using these sticks. You can also use these to create different techniques such as bleeding and blurring.
Each ink stick comes in its own wooden case which provides protection to preserve the life of the ink.
Use for Japanese-style painting, ink wash, watercolour, and coloured ink paintings.
Drop a coin-size droplet of water on an ink stone. Grind the ink stick into the water in a circular motion. Repeat until you’ve created the preferred amount of ink. After use, remove moisture by wiping the ink stick using a cloth or paper. Store ink stick in the wooden box to preserve.
