The Ink Factory

We were able to tour a factory that makes ink for traditional Chinese paintings in Huangshan City. It was great to see how they work with the ink in a solid mass. We both always thought that it was always in a liquid form. These little pieces are molding and then painted in with some gold paint. When you use it you press it into some water causing it to make ink.
