This kit has everything that you need to start Sumi painting. There is one large natural hair (horse) brush, one professional quality medium size brush (mix of sheep and goat hair) and one fine line brush. Also included are one large rectangular ink stone, one ink stick, one roll of Double Shuan rice paper (ten 13.5 x 54 inch sheets) and one wool felt (20 x 39 inch sheet). The felt is for use underneath your painting, to give you a softly padded surface to work on. The supplies are as beautiful as they are functional. Ideal for professionals and beginners alike.
