Yasutomo CS18 Silver Black Ink is a dense black ink with silver powder suspension. The black outlines silver on rice paper; the effect is more subtle on other papers. Specifically made for Chinese art techniques, but suitable for all ink work, painting, drawing and calligraphy. Fade-resistant and water re-soluble. Chinese inks produce slightly cooler tones than Japanese inks. Convenient lid design with an easy pour cap allows for more control and fewer spills. Bottle contains 180 ml (approximately 6.1 oz) ink, and comes boxed.
