Ink is divided into five shadesl burnt,thick, heavy, light and clear.
1. Burnt ink: The liquid ink is ground very thick. When used in a painting, it is black and glossy.
2. Thick ink: Next to burnt ink in blackness, but since a little moisture has been added, it is not glossy.
3. Heavy ink: Slightly blacker than light ink.
4. Light ink: Moisture is added until it becomes grey.
5. Clear ink: Only a light-grey shadow.In contrast to other ink shades it appears clear and vivid.
6. Dry ink and moist ink: The dryness and moistness of ink is the so-called ink charm. The dryness and moistness of the ink represents the dryness and moistness of the brush technique. The two are inseparable. The brush technique and the use of ink are closely linked. Both a moist brush and a dry brush can produce dark and light shades.
In addition, before light ink becomes dry, some thick or moist ink may be added,or before thick ink becomes dry, some light ink may be added, giving the paintingliveliness and variety. Although the painting is dry, it is endowed with a sense of moisture.
