Our original bottled Sumi-e liquid ink especially for Fine Line is no longer being made. We searched and test many inks from Japan to find its comparable replacement. We hope you like it as much as the former!

This Japanese Sumi-e Ink was discovered for its sense of having more glue with the ink. Therefore, OAS included it in our product line especially for Gong-bi and Fine Line Artists. It not only does it not bleed with first application like others but also, when dry, it does not bleed when additional washes overlap.

The tone is rich in black, has the ability to achieve beautiful gradations with the ability to do washes on top of dried washes without disrupting the first layer. Unlike other Chinese inks, it has a mild pine odor for those sensitive to strong smells.

A sample size of this ink is included in all of OAS's Fine Line Sets (Set03 Gong-Bi Set).

This bottle is 180 mL
