Moon Palace Sumi Ink

Item #: moonpa
Our Price: $11.95


Moon Palace Sumi Ink is excellent for both pointed pen and broad edge work. Gives wonderful hairlines, sits up a bit on the page with a bit of a shine when used with a pointed pen. Even smells right to fans of stick ink! Works well in the Parallel Pen. Waterproof when dry.

First Sumi Ink
March 25, 2021
I've been using Speedball for a long time now, and often thought of trying out Sumi, and I'm now glad I have. It's the ink I use for all my practice now. Has a wonderful flow rate, and behavior with all the nibs I use now. Whereas, with Speedball, during a longer session, you seem to wind up building up a lot of dried ink on your nib, and start running into clogging unless you're watering fairly often, this ink doesn't give you that issue. And it finishes with a very similar look, if maybe just a little smoother.

All and all, I think you'd be very hard pressed to come up with a better everyday ink for any sort of flex nib calligraphy.

This is a wonderful ink, it is rich black, it flows wonderful with the nib, dries quite quickly and when it dries, has like a shimmer with a bit of dimersion that I love.
Reading about how it is made marveled me, and made me appreciate, even more the perfume it has: so organic, woody, earthy... this is a must have!

I use this for Copperplate and it's great. It has the unique sumi ink smell and dries fairly quickly. I don't think I have ever had the ink smudge when I'm addressing envelopes or erasing guidelines. I like that it's a deep black with a slight sheen to it. I have heard that some calligraphers dilute their ink, but I haven't had a problem using it straight out of the bottle.

Moon Palace Sumi came highly recommended by one of my instructors and I am so glad I listened. Initially I purchased a small bottle and why oh why did I?

Well, I am back and purchased this size because I use this ink on a daily basis. The consistency and flow are on point and the smell!!!! Have you smelled this stuff? Nice!

It dries to a beautiful sheen which I adore and it is a skosh raised which I also like. The richness of the black is beyond compare. This product is a joy to write with.

This Sumi ink is my favorite black ink to write calligraphy with. It dries quickly and writes very smoothly.
