This Chinese calligraphy ink stick may be used for writing calligraphy or watercolor painting. To make ink from the ink stick, it has to be ground against the moistened ink stone surface in a circular manner. Depending on the desire for color intensity, the artist will dip the brush upon different areas of the stone. The more water, the less intense the color of the black ink. Wipe it clean and let it air dry after each use. Always store it in a dry place and avoid direct sunlight and draft.
