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.

SG27. Schmincke Calligraphy Gouache
SG27. Schmincke Calligraphy Gouache

This difficult-to-find German gouache is highly recommended by Michael Sull for its brightness, smooth flow, and lightfastness. Because mica instead of metal particles is used, the metallics will not darken over time, and because the mica can be more finely ground, it flows through a pen much better. Also recommended by Katrina Berry and others. Schmincke Gold Pearl is our bestselling gold gouache. 20 ml tubes.

When using a fresh tube, squeeze out the clear stuff (glycerin) until you get dense pigment. This glycerin helps keep the gouache from drying in the tube but will keep your work from drying as well. This gouache reconstitutes easily and quickly if it has dried in your pen or on your palette.

Choose color: Opaque White, Lemon Yellow, Cadmium
Yellow Light, Vermilion Red, Madder Red, Ultramarine
Deep Blue, Paris Blue, Chromium Oxide Green, Burnt
Sienna, Jet Black, Gold Pearl, Red Pearl, Silver.

*Ivory Black has been discontinued*
