This Sumi ink is a traditional color- bright, intense Vermilion. The color leans more towards deep, vibrant orange than red. This color is found in many traditional sumi paintings and in traditional calligraphy designs. The ink comes in a low, squat shaped bottle with a wide mouth; so you can dip your pen or brush directly into the bottle. The shape of the bottle helps to prevent spills! 2oz; made in Japan.
