Openinkstand Art & Calligraphy

I purchased this Yasutomo Vermilion sumi ink from a local art shop for fun and absolutely fell in love with it! The ink flows very well, not too thick and not too thin, and leaves a beautiful sharp fine line. Unfortunately the color is too garish for my taste, though some seem to like it. I believe there is a black version of this ink but it is still on order.

You can purchase the ink online here.
