Intricate linework of gallnut-iron ink created by Elizabeth Comer
This easy kit was put together to make a historic black ink, made for centuries by artists, calligraphers, accountants, and teachers. It is a good start for beginners and for classes to learn hands-on history. Kit ingredients can stain fingers and clothing, so protective nitrile gloves and aprons are suggested.
Kit comes with: 1 oz whole Aleppo gallnuts, 1 oz iron powder, 1 oz tannin powder, 1 oz gum Arabic powder, tutorial, packed in a 6.5 x 5.5 x 1″ box.
