Chinese Students Ink Stick.
This is a standard Chinese Student quality Ink Stick. Used with an Ink Stone, gently moved round in a circular motion to create Chinese ink with a little water. Slowly the glues, medicines and perfumes, soots and other ingredients create a melted butter consistency ink. This is then used in Chinese Paintings and Chinese Calligraphy depending on your work demand.

Chinese ink sticks come in many qualities and sizes, colours and shapes. They are a mixture of Glues, perfumes, mother of pearl sometimes, bear gall bladder, young deer horn glues, and other ingredients. Sometimes Pine Sap is burned to make the soot, sometimes the branches themselves. (Be careful of very cheap ink sticks where old engine oil has been burned or rubber tyres which is highly toxic. Beware of tourist ink sticks also. These have grit and sand in because of ill care in their making, also they have much plaster of paris in them as well. This renderes them useless. But the grit will scratch and damage your ink stone.)
