INK INFO · Please shake natural inks well before use, and decant a small amount into an inkwell, dish or bottle cap to draw. You can adjust the flow of the ink to suit your own style by diluting with a drop or two of water, or thicken by adding extra Gum Arabic, or simply allowing some of the liquid to evaporate from the well before use.
〰️ About Natural Inks
Natural inks are not as stable or lightfast as their more commercially produced counterparts.
Part of the charm and character of natural inks is that every batch is slightly different depending on the season, growing conditions and the soil plants have grown in. Your inks may experience some mould, but can still be used just scoop it out and it is good as new.
The colour and consistency of natural inks can also change over time. The ink is subject to transformation as it is a “living” creation. It's recommended to keep them out of direct sunlight and in a cool dark place - ideally refrigerated. These inks have good lightfastness, however it's recommended that artworks made with botanical inks are kept out of direct sunlight, or treated with a fixative spray.
