I have a set of ingredients most handy in the making of Iron Gall ink to pass on to the next generation of Ink Experimenters.

In the box: 6/7 California Oak galls. 1-2 ounces Gum Arabic powder. @1 ounce Ferrous Sulfate.

Beer not included. Shipping to all parts of the USA is on me.

Assuming there's any interest, I'll throw names into the Little Antique Desk Aquarium and draw one out at the end of the month, 1/31/2017.

Cool of you! I have two giant trash bags of galls, but have not been able to find a local source of Ferrous sulfate, which means I must not have googled it yet, oops.

And, yeah I googled it and it is easily available. Silly me.

BUMP. So...I'm thinking there must be more geeks here nerdy enough to brew their own ink...?
