Ink Making

Here are instructions in how to make your own ink to write and draw with. All ingredients can be found in a supermarket and art supplier, but the main ingredient in making an exciting colour could come from your kitchen cupboard or from the great outdoors!

Please take care!

Please ask an adult for permission to do this, firstly they will need to assist you in the heating process if using a hob, but you could also make an ink that could stain!  This could be seen as a sign of a successful ink, but someone at home may not be impressed!
