Since red is one of the most important symbolic colors in China, artists have loved the cinnabar color since ancient times. Red represents luck, joy, enthusiasm, passion and morale, and is used to decorate many festivals throughout the year. Additionally, red is used to decorate new houses, and brides traditionally wear a red dress on their wedding day.

Even though liquid ink began to be used for Chinese art in the mid-19th Century, artists still love to use ink sticks because of the traditional element it lends to their art, as well as the control it provides them in controlling the consistency of the ink they use. The Cinnabar Ink Stick will be a great addition to your studio that you can use for many types of art, including Calligraphy writing and Sumi-E and Fineline painting.
