Anonymous asked: Would you recommend kuretake.taobao to get the water pen? or do you get your materials from a store in Taiwan? sorry for the questions, I am just very enthralled with your calligraphy
If you are beginner of Chinese Calligraphy, I strongly recommend starting with Chinese writing brush. It’s much easier to control and express. And yes I get my materials from store in Taiwan.
Chinese writing brush produce in Taiwan or Japan has better quality. I recommend 黃記 (HUANGKEE), but I’m not sure it’s sell abroad.
Prepared Chinese Ink : I use Taiwan 吳竹. Any brand will do.
Water brush pen: it’s depend on the font you write and your habit. I often use 吳竹墨液くれ竹筆 太字(26号).
I’ll find another time writing more detail about chinese calligraphy materials.
