Chinese New Year 25-Piece Complete Spring Festival Couplets (Chūnlián) Calligraphy Kit

Good Characters distributes authentic, actual size Chinese spring couplet paper and calligraphy supplies. The red couplet papers are not typical products you can get from office supply stores. They are fine textured with a traditional Chinese watermark background pattern. We have limited stock, so please hurry.

Piece #1 to #15: Total 3 Sets of Spring Couplet Papers:

Each set consists of 2 Seven-Character Gold Dust Spring Couplet Papers, 2 Four-Character Gold Dust Spring Couplet Papers, and 1 Single Character Gold Dust Spring Couplet Paper.

Gold [embossed] dust design. The image on some computers might not show the correct color. Just be assured that it’s authentic Chinese red. Some other vendors sell cheaper but very thin papers. Ours are just the right weight preferred by professional Chinese calligraphers. Embossed gold dust design adds the luxury feel. Also most other sellers ship couplet papers folded. I don’t want my paper folded with deep creases! We ship our papers to you in a sturdy box. Each piece of paper is perfect and has never been folded.

Piece #19 to #23: The Complete Ink Set:

1 Durable Plastic Inkstone: Plum Flower Inkstone Medium 梅花硯中 (méi huā yàn zhōng)

The inkstone is simple and practical. It’s designed for grinding and/or holding ink. Water is placed in the deepest end of the inkstone. The ink is grinded on the flat end of the inkstone.

Length: 4.67 inches (11.86 cm)
Width: 2.53 inches (6.43 cm)
Height: 0.59 inch (14.97 mm)
Weight: 1.9 ounces (56 grams)

1 Small Inkstick: Pine Soot Inkstick Small 玉樹吐芳曹素功製 (yù shù tǔ fāng cáo sù gōng zhì)

This black ink stick is made from pine soot, powdered carbon of burnt pine, and a binding agent. Pine soot is black and light.

It is made specifically for calligraphy and handwriting. When its end is dipped in the water well of an inkstone and rubbed over the stone’s level surface, carbon particles fall off and dissolve in the water to produce ink.

Length: 2.85 inches (72.61 mm)
Width: 0.69 inch (17.49 mm)
Height: 0.33 inch (8.35 mm)
Weight: 0.5 ounce (14 grams)

If you are hosting a public spring couplet writing event, you don’t have time to grind your ink. The solution is to use only liquid ink and put it on the ink stone or ink well. An ink stone’s large surface and its raised edge allows you to glide your brush on it to smooth the brush hair back to its sharp-pointed form.

This is a wooden brush rest that can hold up to three brushes and measures less than 3 in.

Instead of resting your brush on the edge of the inkstone, you can prevent your brush from accidentally rolling over onto your work by using this brush rest to hold your brushes in place.
