    Here are the prices for those supplies in my area.
    The prices for grid paper went down a bit because of the magic paper selling now.
    The brush normally is sold around 10-40 dollars.
    You could get a very decent ink stick for 5 dollars but there are some good ones around 3 dollars too.
    Ink stone sells around 10-20 dollars at least.

    @Rozyonnie I have included the contact and link in YouTube More Info. That e-Bay store does not list this set online. For prompt service it’s best that you call Robert and he has several better sets available.

    If a brush is well made and pointy, we may use less than 1/10 for small-scale calligraphy or about 1/5 to 1/3 for the size shown here. Same brush, just different pressure.
