    Default Thames river Ink.

    I made a walnut homemade ink. It is based on LONDON THAMES RIVER WATRER ADDED hence the name Thames river ink.
    This idea came to me from a writer who travels around Uk and picking up water from rivers and streams he is hiking around.
    He is journaling and write letters to his friends about the ink he is using. That inspired me to make this ink and it is a great idea.
    I made one walnut ink sample more golden by adding YELLOW "SOSA FOOD COLOURING " which is a pure organic pigments used in fine pastry ( I am a pastry chef too in another matrix ")
    That ink came nice and golden and very great in dip pens to achieve very fine hair lines. I used tap water and aded cloves to keep the moulds away. So far so good and smells nice and delicious.

    I am thinking of making an ink with chocolate. Why not???

    I have already tried a glass nib with concentrated coffee and it works. So why not chocolate. White chocolate ink on a black paper will be fantastic.
