Last year we began a partnership with calligrapher Connie Chen to have her review some of our most popular products. Her review of gold inks was particularly popular with our blog readers, and she has just produced another video where she reviews sumi inks for use specifically in pointed pen calligraphy. For each ink, she gives a rating for drying time, hair line, odor and shine. (The ratings she created are only comparable for the sumi inks she tested -as she explains in the video- and are based entirely on her opinions and experiences using the inks.) Further, she shows each ink in use and offers her thoughts on each one as she writes. We think you’ll really enjoy her video. Simply watching her write the names of each ink so beautifully proved mesmerizing for us!
