Gallnuts and gum arabic for historical ink

If you want to write completely in historical style, make your own iron gall ink. You can make it from gallnuts, gum arabic and iron sulphate. You can buy gallnuts and gum arabic in our shop. You can make iron sulphate yourself with nails, for example. If you have a medieval scriptorium at reenactment, you can show the visitors how to make the ink. These items are also ideal for museums. We sell ready-made gall ink if you don't feel like making your own ink, but still need ink for your scriptorium. This ink comes in a medieval jar with cork.
