Drawing With Liquid Silk  

3 Apr

I was out this evening, giving a talk to the lovely people at the Porth Cawl art group and some of them were interested in how I made my home-made walnut ink, so here it is again. It’s definitely worth doing if you can get your hands on a few walnut fruits, not the nuts, the greeny, apply fruit around the nut is what’s needed. It’s a lovely ink to use, like drawing with liquid silk.

    After your first post on Walnut ink, Rosie, it was the wrong season for ground fallen walnut fruit. So I bought a supply of “ready made” at my local art store. It might not be the same as homemade….but I love it! Rich washes. Spot on….liquid silk!
