The colored ink sticks we carry are among the best quality colored ink sticks that can be found.
Still, their ink cannot match the ink produced from high-quality darker ink sticks which is created by grinding the stick on an ink slab. The reason for this is that the darker ink sticks are the traditional ink sticks with ingredients developed perfectly over the centuries whereas colored ink sticks are more recent to add more variety to sumi and Chinese brush painting.
For this reason, please do not expect the colored ink sticks to work the same way as your traditional dark premium ink sticks; the only colored ink stick which can rival ink created from darker premium ink sticks is the Golden Dragon.
However, the colorful ink sticks make a great addition to your toolkit and are of very good quality “ provided, one does not expect them to do what a Can Pei Shi can do. Therefore, we mostly recommend our colored ink sticks for art projects and color effects on a sumi painting as an alternative to Marie's Colors.
