All tools for carving
When I was 4 years old, I started to learn Chinese calligraphy (yes, I know, typical Tiger Mother! I was that little!), it was hard at first, but later on you are spoiled by the compliments "WOW, your handwriting is beautiful!". The journey of exploring the great beauty in Chinese characters was fantastic, I'd like to share with you. Please join me and find your own interpretation of Chinese words!
