Chinese Painting : Chinese Ink Sticks
An Ink Stick can be ground down in the mixing stone with a little water to make Indian or Chinese ink – by holding the ink stone and forcing it down into the mixing stone and moving in a circular motion whilst adding a little water from time to time, you will make your own ink with which to paint.
Jackson's sell black ink sticks as well as 5 coloured ink sticks – white, red, green, blue and yellow. These work in the same way as the black ink sticks – add a little water gradually as you grind the stick into a grinding stone to make a waterbased ink with which to paint.
