HAKKASEN (WHITE INSTICK 白華泉),此產品的顏色,與白米那般自然通透的色澤相似。


It is not easy to find pure white ink to paint on goldfish, it must be pure white and natural, and the brightness on the scales of the fish should be high.

HAKKASEN (WHITE INSTICK), the color of this product is similar to the natural and transparent color of white rice.

Add (water-based) aroma essential oil to add its luster, such as the oil fat brightness in nephrite jade, concentration is easy to control; This product blends with other color products of Kobaien, or produces a hazy beauty on the sub-coating.

How do you grind inksticks?

Ms. Junko Azukawa, a contemporary calligrapher and ink painter in Australia, explains how to use stickinks.
