These Chinese ink sticks are very attractive, featuring traditional Chinese calligraphy paintings of birds and flowers. The etched golden designs bring a flare to the art and may inspire you in your own creativity. At least you will feel that using ink stones like these make your Oriental art projects much more fun and interesting.
The ink stones are made out of traditional oil soot, which when combined with water makes a rich and smooth ink, which will be excellent for Chinese calligraphy. You can use more or less water to vary the consistency of the ink.
Set of four ink stones are each 30g (1 ounce) and come packed in a nice box, handy to give as a gift or for storing your ink sticks when they are not in use.
Ink sticks are one of the four treasures of study in China, along with paper, calligraphy brush, and ink stone.
