An inkstone is considered as one of the “Four Treasures in Brush Painting” along with Ink, Brush, and Paper.
Ink is ground on an Inkstone, which is usually made of slate.
How to grind ink on an Inkstone:
Place a few drops of water in the well or bottom of the slate and rotate the ink stick.
Hold the stick gently but firmly in a vertical manner, keeping in mind its fragile nature.
The ink is ready when you see little bubbles appearing when you grind.
