Walnut Ink

So this is what I did.

Soaked the shells in water, not distilled (though I read it should have been)  for 48 hours. 

Cooked them for 24hour

Strained and removed cooked shells

Reduced liquid by 80%

Strain through 4 layers of muslin

Strain through a coffee filter or something similar, I used a garden mesh that is used to shelter plants from frosts.

Reduce by half again.

I have a project ready and waiting for it ...   Can't wait!
