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)

PS47. Arches WC HP 140LB 22x30
Arches Watercolor
Hot Press 140lb. 300gsm. 22"x30".

Superior quality, 100% rag, for pen and all techniques with opaque and transparent watercolor. Long used by calligraphers. HP (Hot press) finish is a very smooth sheet that will give a sharp smooth edge to your letters. Cold press watercolor paper can be used for calligraphy, but the letters won't be as crisp. You will see the cold press texture in your lettering. This has always been one of our most popular sheets.

Grain runs parallel to the underlined dimension.

This paper ships separately from books/supplies and requires an extra shipping fee which is NOT included in the price of this product. Add item 'PS00' to your cart after adding large sheets of paper. (click to read details)

PS90. Arches Cover Paper Black
Arches Cover Black
22"x30". 250gsm. Mouldmade in France. 100% cotton. pH neutral, lightly sized, textured surface. 4 deckles. Black.

Laurie Doctor and others recommend this sheet for book and portfolio covers. It folds without cracking. Judy Melvin likes it for her calligraphic painting - however this is NOT the Arches Black that will bleach correctly. When bleach is applied to this new version the paper turns pink (salmon). Grain direction is parallel to underlined dimension.

P20-REAM. JNB 11x17 Practice Paper Ream
JNB Practice Ream
11"x17". Approximately 500 sheets.

Smooth paper for pointed pen and broad edge calligraphy. The paper takes the ink well and does not bleed or feather with most inks. (We tested with Higgins Eternal, Noodler’s, McCaffery's, and Richtone Colors, as well as Pilot Parallel Pen ink cartridges). For pointed pen, the smooth surface helps avoid pen catches on upstrokes. Guidelines will show through. Good for classes and practice (24 lb. bond).


Ream is packaged in a box for easy storage.
For an 8.5"x11" version of this pad, see item P25.
