A large horse hair brush (pointed not flat).

Chinese ink (usually comes in a brick and activated with water or you can use standard black indian ink that has been thinned with water)

Rice paper or tracing paper works well. You can do practice drawings on large sheets of newsprint too, but it tends to buckle from the water.
