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 by 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.

Non-waterproof Made from walnut hulls.

This highly pigmented sepia colored ink works well for writing and washes. Being pigmented, this Walnut ink will not fade like other Walnut inks. In washes, the ink handles like a watercolor, with good layering and lifting capabilities.
The darkening medium is not an ink but an additive to be used to darken the original ink without losing the unique watercolor characteristics or the ability to lift color or lighten areas.
The darkening Medium is very heavily pigmented. It can also be used straight from the bottle. However, it is so heavily pigmented that it will behave like a sumi ink and stain the paper and not lift as easily as the original.
Comes with a measured amount of dried walnut hulls tied in a nylon stocking foot (for approx 2 or 4 ounces of ink), vinyl gloves, an extra stocking for straining, and a plastic jar sized for finished ink. You provide a nonreactive soaking container that can be covered, hot water (distilled is best), and soaking time of 2-4 days.
