Wild black walnut ink

After years of talking about doing it, I finally made my own ink from wild walnut husks. We have a tree in our backyard that is very generous every Fall but you gotta act fast because the squirrels are in ruthless hoarding mode and are not as generous haha. Anyway, it’s a lovely rich brown ink and I used my son’s prized falcon feather as a dip quill pen to make this drawing. This is fun I may make a series of walnut ink drawings 🙂 ~Despina
