I am excited to be offering writing and drawing ink made from alder cones from Little Parks Farm.
Gathered throughout the winter months, soaked for a few days before reducing the liquid to make the ink.
A beautiful rich brown through the black. I added gum arabic and as a preservative, I used wintersweet essential oil.
The ink has been enriched with an iron solution made from vinegar and rusty nails, which has turned the ink into a beautiful dark brown/black, suitable for drawing, fountain pens, quills and dying cloth. Please note you should clean your fountain pen after using this to avoid the iron rusting your pen.
Sold in 60ml with a wide lip for ease of dipping, and longer shelf life out of the sun.
