INK001 - Powdered Ink - $4.00

large product photo   Powdered Ink  - $4.00
 
We found this  authentic wrapper in a book about 18th century London, and had to put it to good use. So, we started making powdered ink based on an authentic 18th century recipe. Powdered ink was a very practical way to transport ink, because you didn't need an inkwell. And when you needed some ink, you only needed to mix what you actually needed. Our ink box contains enough powder to make one fluid ounce of ink. That amount is about what you would purchase in an art supply store in a modern ink bottle.
