Free flowing dense traditional recipe Chinese black drawing ink ideal for illustration, calligraphy and brush work. Supplied in a plastic container with screw cap for easy transference. Works beautifully with Artway bamboo dip pens, mapping pens and Chinese brushes*.

Use neat for dense dark shading and sumi-e painting or dilute with water for ink washes and gradient effects. Dries to a matte black lightfast finish with a slight sheen (dependant upon the absorbency of the surface). It is smudge proof and water reactive on most substrates.

Artway Chinese Sumi ink is made using lamp oil soot (derived from the burning of vegetable oil) mixed with water and binder (non vegan) - this type of ink is often referred to as 'Yuenboku' and is rarer than the standard wood based offering. Artway Sumi ink is non-toxic and permanent being produced in the Jiangxi Province, South East China.

Available in both 100ml and 500ml bottles.

* PLEASE NOTE that Artway Sumi Ink is not suitable for fountain pens
