Section Title

How to create natural ink with pomegranate skins

 

On the kit you are going to find:

 

  • Four of five white eggshells ( you can also use brown eggs, the final colour is going to be a little different)

  • A mortar and pestle

  • A muller glass and flat glass

  • A spatula

  • Two drops of Gum arabic

  • Two drops of water

  • One drop of Honey or glycerin

  • One drop of clove oil

 

You will need to add:

  • Four of five white eggshells ( you can also use brown eggs, the final colour is going to be a little different)

  • A mortar and pestle

  • A muller glass and flat glass

  • A spatula

  • Two drops of Gum arabic

  • Two drops of water

  • One drop of Honey or glycerin

  • One drop of clove oil

 

1. First, we have to clean the eggshells with cold water, and try to remove the inner layer of the eggshells ( the transparent membrane that some eggs have)

 

2. Then, brake the eggshells into small pieces and put them inside the mortar, with the pestle crush them until you have small pieces. ( is important to use a facemask when crushing the eggshells to avoid breathing the fine powder)

3. Continue to crush the eggshells until all the eggshells are pulverized.

 

4. Put a small amount of the pulverized eggshells on a glass, add the gum arabic, the water and the honey and mix with a spatula.
