About This Product
This traditional black ink from Japan works with brushes, dip pens, and reed pens. Sumi ink can be diluted with water, blurred and blended into warm greys, and it works well on a variety of paper types. It's a popular choice for calligraphy—both pointed-pen and brush calligraphers swear by sumi ink.
Yasutomo Sumi Ink is thick and dark, and it dries to a satin sheen. It is water-resistant but not waterproof, so if you'd like to use it with watercolor, we recommend doing your inked lines last, after the page is dry. Made with lamp black pigment, sumi ink is naturally lightfast and will never fade.
Available in a handy 60 mL inkwell or a large 360 mL bottle for professional and educational use. Made in Japan.
