Chinese character writing is a highly evolved discipline that relies as much on artistic craftsmanship, as it does on literary composition. Our basic writing set comes with two brushes, a black ink stick, ink stone and red ink for the “chop” or signature stamp. The ink is made by gently rubbing the ink stick in a small pool of water in the ink stone. This ancient method allow s for very little waste. The same bushes and inks may be used both for writing and painting, as the two art forms are

    This item comes in a very nice case and has great presentation. It is perfect for a “beginning” calligraphy student. My 11 year old son loves his set and was very happy with the items included. If you are looking for something more advanced you would want something with a little finer brushes. I would buy this item again for a child.

    This review is from: Chinese calligraphy writing and brush painting / sumi set (Kitchen)

    I recently received the larger kit (more brushes), and have no doubt that it will suffice for a beginner like me; but I have not used it, because instructions are lacking regarding the use and maintenance of a brush. For example, how does one
    1. prep the brush before use,
    2. charge it with ink,
    3. hold it,
    4. make broad and thin strokes,
    5. clean and dry it,
    6. and maintain it?

    I could experiment and, perhaps, find answers, but I might also estlablish bad writing habits. What is the proper technique for making ink, and how does one check foe proper consistency? BYW, what’s that little plastic soon for?

    Right now I’m casting about on the net for answers.
