Olive Green Buckthorn Berry Historic Calligraphy and Drawing Ink, 1 oz $12.00

Our olive green buckthorn berry ink is carefully made from buckthorn berries, alum, and other period ingredients. It is a moderately thick, semi-transparent ink with beautiful shading. Ink ordered from this listing comes in a 1 fl. oz. glass bottle with a screw on lid (pictured).

The ink is made using medieval and renaissance techniques, but the recipe is extrapolated as no documented recipes for the ink have been found. However, recipes for pigments made from buckthorn berries are readily available in historic sources, so it is not inconceivable that buckthorn ink existed historically, we just have no record of it at present.
