Walnut Ink 2022
A gift! Last fall my friend James dropped off a bucket of walnuts!
After sitting through the winter and drying out. I was ready to cook. My set up was outside on an early April day.
They cooked on a low temperature for 6hrs. Then sat overnight.
Looks like it is ready.
First strain through a metal strainer, the again through a finer mesh strainer.
I strained it again through cheese cloth.
Definitely need to do this in a place where you can make a mess.

Just found your site-I am just getting into botanical inks-I made black walnut ink a couple years ago and just love it! I ended up with 6 quarts too
I make it every year and give it to fellow artists and friends as gifts.
