Do you have an ink dependence? I can help...

Taccia Ukiyo-e Hokusai-Sabimidori


This is the first of the Ukiyo-e inspired inks I've tried from Taccia, and it's extremely good. This is an ink whose color is a little difficult to pin down. The when it's wet, it's kind of a cerulean blue. As it dries it turns green and then develops a bronze sheen. It's just awesome. There are one or two other Hokusai themed inks that I want to try, but this is one that I'd really like to have a bottle of. I'm only waiting for it to come back into stock.

For more information about this line of inks, and a nice run down of the art that inspires them, you should check out Macciato Man's blog post
