Traditionally Japanese ink is only available in black. Shinseido developed this set of colored inks so that calligraphers would be able to set colorful accents to their works. As the base of these ink stones still is black ink the light watery colors harmoniously combine with black ink. The colored ink is available in eight colors:
- 雪 - YUKI - Snow - White
- 地 - CHI - Earth - Brown
- 天 - TEN - Heaven - Blue
- 花 - HANA - Flower - Violett
- 月 - TSUKI - Moon - Yellow
- 樹 - KI - Trees - Green
- 雅 - MIYABI - ELEGANT - Purple
- 陽 - YOO - SUN - Red
Please select you color in the color option below.
The colored ink sticks are available as single sticks but they also are very popular as a set in the elegant gift box.
