SUMINK STICK - Traditional Japanese Ink for Sumi Illustrations

An inkstone is a stone mortar for the grinding and containment of ink.

SUMI-E is the Japanese word for Black Ink Painting. East Asian Painting and writing developed together in ancient China using the same materials — brush and ink on paper. Emphasis is placed on the beauty of each individual stroke of the brush. The Chinese speak of “writing a painting” and “painting a poem.”

Pack contains: Replacement Ink Stick only - dimensions 90 x 22 x 8mm

Also available is the Sumi Ink and the Sumi Ink Painting Set in our Sumi Ink and Accessories Collection

 

Video below: Sumi Ink can be created by two simple steps by dropping water onto the inkstone then grinding the inkstick onto the wet inkstone.
