    Just a quick note regarding inks….I have found that using glass beads from craft store do a great job of blending those inks…especially the gold…I bought a string of cheap glass beads and dropped 3 …½ inch beads into the kuretake gold and then replace the lid and swirl in a circle and it blended the gold perfectly…it worked so well I used it in my white and black sumi and in fact any of my inks that sit for a while…just thought you might want to share this with others that don’t have one of those blending things….this works well and doesn’t cause foam/bubbles on the surface..

    This review was so helpful in deciding what Sumi to use for my practice work. It’s great to see such a great calligrapher take time to review calligraphy items most people have questions about.

    Brilliant tip about the glass beads. I’m new to calligraphy and I’ve been shaking and shaking my gold ink in vain.

    Good review but turn the music down, it truly interferes with listening to what you are saying.

    Thank you Connie Chen for a great review of Sumi inks. I am inspired to try a lot of them! However, one major point: I agree very much with Bill Kemp’s remark that you should turn the music down–even OFF–since I could not understand half of what you were saying! Although I am a musician, here we want the info on these inks and your wonderful writing display! One more suggestion: would it be possible to turn the page horizontally so we can read what you are writing as you write? Thanks again for a much appreciated video! Trevor Jones

    I agree with Bill and Trevor. I, too, am a musician, and I found it difficult to understand what she was saying.
