Item #: IS39
$11.95 - $20.95

These unique ink sticks are unlike any art supply you’ve used before! Made with vividly saturated high-quality organic pigments and a gelatin binder, Saiboku Aya ink sticks give you the experience of traditional sumi ink sticks with a gorgeous pop of color. Handmade by skilled craftsmen in Japan, each Saiboku ink stick varies slightly in size and bears the subtle marks of the hands that created them. Molded with a beautiful pattern of four petals called hanabishi, a motif similar to a family crest.

Fine-grained colors can be layered without becoming muddy, and can be used for sumi, ink, and watercolor painting as well as broad edge and pointed pen calligraphy. Colors are intermixable, but may have different densities and separate easily. Stir thoroughly and frequently to avoid separation. To use these pigment sticks, rub them with a small amount of water on an ink stone / grinding dish. We recommend using these ink sticks with the Boku-Undo Suzuki Ink Stone (Bok-24077) it is easier to see when your colors are ready on the white surface of this ink stone / grinding dish than traditional black.

Dry completely after use to avoid cracking. Store in a cool, dry place for best results and to preserve ink sticks for long-lasting, high-performing use. Saiboku Aya ink sticks are for professional use only and should not be used by children. Avoid ingesting them or making them into a dry powder, as they may be harmful to breathe in. Not for cosmetic use.

Roughly 2.5” x 1.25” in size. Each Saiboku Aya ink stick comes packaged in a paper box. Much of the packaging is in Japanese, including the color name; please reference the number on the back of each box to confirm color.
