Chinese Calligraphy / Painting Ink Sticks: Chinese ink sticks are a type of solid ink used traditionally for Chinese calligraphy and Chinese brush painting. Chinese ink sticks have been used for thousands of years. Chinese ink sticks are made mainly of soot and glue, sometimes with scents added. To make ink from the ink stick, it has to be ground against the moistened ink stone surface in a circular manner. Depending on the desire for color intensity, the artist will dip the brush upon different areas of the stone. The more water, the less intense the color of the black ink. Wipe it clean and let it air dry after each use. Always store it in a dry place and avoid direct sunlight and draft.
