Hello All ... Wonder if anyone out there knows the name of the paint that Asian street artists use when creating 'pictorial calligraphy'. It is a type of water-based paint that can stay exposed to air for several hours without drying out. Also, it is not a flat brush BUT a handmade applicator called 'leather brush' which is some type of material pressed between two flat holders. BUT what is the material?
There is no information to be found on the Internet ... a well-kept Korean secret.
Looking forward to your replys.

Hi, Sym!

Welcome to WC! I don't know what type of ink, but this artist uses leather brushes. http://www.korean-kang.com/

Are you working on this sort of calligraphy? Love to see what you've come up with!
