• Sumi ink (packed tightly in plastic bag!) (I70)

• pencil sharpener: (no motors please) (S933)
• white eraser (E13)
• 12" or larger metal ruler with rubber backing (S270)
• plastic plate, palette paper, or palette for mixing color (S744, S679)
• small, cheap brushes for mixing watercolor
• small, pointed watercolor brush: # 2,4, or 6 Gold Scepter (red handle) BR26 or Richeson 9000 series are inexpensive
• 2 inexpensive wide brushes (3" or so) like natural bristle house paint or cheap foam brushes (BR53)
• container for water S784
• rags or paper towels S817
• approx. 6 half sheets ( 20 x 25) of Arches Text Wove - the amount of paper is an estimate as people work at different speeds (if possible, roll paper or fold in half for travel)(PS01)
• containers, about pint size, with lids (at least 6) for acrylic paint. We never seem to have too many containers! Be sure they have wide enough mouths to dip the wide brushes into.
• 3 tubes of watercolor or gouache for detail: any yellow, red, and blue –(WNG523, 524, 527) *(it would be possible for 2 people to share these)
• house sponge (approx. 4 x 6 x 1/2) cut into quarters
•Acrylic paints: (these particular colors are important, "hue" means "fake"- so don't get Cad Red Hue): cad red, quinacrodone red, cad yellow, hansa yellow, ultramarine blue, phthalo blue and titanium or zinc white (it would be possible for 2 people to share these). (I137) Golden is best for quality and intensity of color- tubes, jars or liquid are okay- 2 oz size tubes are what I use. *(2 people can share)
• I sheet of frosted mylar (20 x 25 or larger) (PS100)
Optional: 2 long-handled brushes for acrylic, carbon ink or graphite block (made by Derwent and others)
any water soluble graphite pencils or blocks (S858)

I70. Moon Palace Sumi Ink
Moon Palace Sumi
The Ink is now in a bottle with a Gold Label

While the packaging is a bit different, this is the highly sought after and highly recommended Japanese Sumi Ink. For both broad edge and pointed pen work. Dries waterproof. A great calligraphy ink.

"I like Moon Palace better, but both Moon Palace and Best Bottle are beautiful inks. The Moon Palace has a slight sheen to it, which I like. Michael suggested this ink to me so please tell him I said, "thank you". I just finished a job of 200 invitations with Moon Palace and the ink is beautiful. I did not dilute the ink.
A client just brought me invitations (slick paper) to address. This bride knew going into this that I probably couldn't do pointed pen. However, for fun, I tried the Sumi inks and to my surprise they worked pretty darn good. I usually have to use a sharpie on slick envelopes, yikes!!!"

--Clair F., Jan 2011.

Four sizes available:

2.0 oz (widemouthed jar)
6.0 oz (180ml)
15 oz
60 oz
