Once upon a midnight dreary...
Nevermore is a carbon black ink made from charred wood collected by my children from our backyard fire pit. Carbon black ink, unlike other botanical inks, is not a dye-based ink. Instead, the carbon black is ground into a fine powder that is suspended in liquid/water, much like a liquid watercolor. Be sure to shake the bottle vigorously before use as the pigment particles will settle at the bottom.
Individual inks are priced at:
5ml sampler - $7
5oz bottle - $11
If you are interested in multiple inks, please use the code B2G1FREE at checkout in order to receive 3 bottles for the price of 2! This code is good for all sizes of individual ink listings. It is not valid on Ink Collections.
This ink contains all-natural materials and is vegan-friendly.
Available in 5 ml sampler size or 0.5 oz dropper bottles.
Please note: Due to the nature of botanical materials, slight variations may occur in the color of your inks depending on your nib/paintbrush, the pH balance of your water and/or paper, whether the paper is 100% cotton or made from other materials, etc.
Handmade inks are not suitable for use in fountain pens.
Botanical Ink - Nevermore
All inks ship via USPS First-Class Mail with Tracking at no additional cost. You may upgrade your shipping to Priority or Priority Express during Check-Out.
International shipping will be calculated during checkout, depending on weight and destination.
Unlike commercially produced inks, my handmade botanical inks are made from all natural ingredients and do not contain chemical preservatives and anti-fungals.
Thyme or lemongrass essential oils--and in larger bottles (excluding 5 ml sample size) a whole clove--has been added to prevent mold growth.
To further protect your inks from developing mold, avoid dipping your pen or brush directly into the ink bottle or jar. Use a dropper/pipette to transfer small amounts of ink into a smaller ink well for dipping.
