Many methods have been used to make ink...such as extracts from trees, berries, plants, animals, and minerals. One method in Colonial America was to use the soot that came from burnt lamp oil. The soot was mixed with a solution of either gum, glue, oak galls, or boiled walnut hulls with vinegar and salt, the molded into sticks, allowed to dry, and before use, mixed with water to form ink for their quills. 

Packets sold individually. Choose between blue & black ink.
