Item details

Black Walnut Ink. Perfect for using with nibs or fountain pens. A quill would work too. It can be used to age paper, add that vintage flair, sponge, stripe, dab, doodle, splash, drop.

Your imagination is your only limitation!

I made some homemade Rorschach ink blot tests. They turned out fantastic! From what I have read online about black walnut ink, this is archival-acid free.

Yes. It's true. I make my own black walnut ink. And now I have a beautiful batch to share with you. I take a couple dozen black walnuts, cover with water and place them on my wood stove to simmer. They simmer real slow for a very long time. I strain the liquid into another pan. I then cook that down even further to get the beautiful, brown color you see. I add essential oils and preservatives. It has a very mild mint scent.

Can be diluted with rubbing alcohol to lighten or leave lid off for evaporation to further darken.

1 oz. amber dropper bottle

Ingredients-Black walnut ink in water, isopropyl alcohol, eucalyptol, menthol, methyl salicylate, thymol, benzoic acid.

Look at the third picture in the listing to see what the ink looks like with different pen nibs. Beautiful ink for making ATC's, tags, matchboxes, scrapbook pages, vintage & distressed techniques.

The last picture is an ACEO of Elvis I made using the black walnut ink & crayons. (Not included. Available by request).
