Reproduction of original drawing of black walnut ink and pen on paper.


I make all my black walnut ink, picking up enough hulls from the walnut tree from the ground where they drop, green, in the late summer.  I wait for them to ferment, turning a rich brown, soak them in creek water, then boil it down over a fire into a concentrated ink.  Each batch lasts a couple of years.
