I150. True Walnut Ink
I150. True Walnut Ink.

This rich, sepia-colored ink is made from the hulls of the Black Walnut tree (Juglans nigra), which is found throughout most of the eastern United States. A small amount of isopropyl alcohol is added to help prevent mold growth, but if mold forms, just scrape if off – the ink is still good. It is not suitable for use with children, but you can make your own without added alcohol (see I148. Dried Walnut Hulls or I149. Walnut Ink Kit). Wide-mouth, 1oz glass jar.

Your Price $8.00

This how-to book guides you through a variety of mixed-media techniques for adding words and phrases to complement your art. The 24 projects encourage you to explore your visual vocabulary through stamping, image transfers, stenciling and much more. You are introduced to many techniques and tools for handmade letters. The letters used for the quotes in the projects vary from calligraphic, casually hand-lettered, and just handwriting, to digitally produced and to stamped, rubbed, stickered, and pasted on. Includes an inspiring gallery of artists who share their own tips and tricks for creatively working with their favorite quotes. The emphasis is on combining words and image, rather than fine lettering.
