Inky stuff.

I’m doing a little test run on the ink before making a larger batch – and since that involves interesting stuff, you might want to enjoy some pictures of it…

It all starts with the oak galls – in my case, imported ones (which was done in the medieval times as well).

These get crushed, and then they get to soak in water for a few days, with a gentle stir at least once every day.

The next step: Adding iron sulphate – that’s the lovely green stuff…

…which instantly turns the brownish liquid black.

And now the whole thing needs to mature again for a few days…
