Walnut Ink

Here is the walnut ink I made from the fallen husks and nuts. The writing is just done with a paint brush and would probably be neater with a nib pen but i couldnt find one to try it out. I should be able to thicken this with caragen or similar and use it to screen print or stamp with but that will have to be another day. According to the Alic Fox book you can make onion ink and acorn ink. I did try the acorn one but forgot about the pot and it burnt dry and ruined my pot so am giving it a rest for a few days before I try again
