1 How to Make Iron Gall Ink on Mon Apr 08, 2013 8:53 pm

Make a traditional iron gall ink from a chemical reaction. Fill a jar with steel wool cleaned with kerosene. Pour vinegar over the steel wool in the jar and seal; let the jar stand overnight. Brew a strong tea with 4 tea bags and 1/2 cup boiling water. Steep the tea for 15 minutes. Let the tea cool, then mix equal parts tea and vinegar solution together in another container. Add a little mucilage (a thick, sticky sap from plants used as a thickener) to the ink. Use the ink now or save in a glass jar. The ink will darken with age.




On the new planet: the knives, the hatchets, and the cups are steel. A'lo and K'so found a plant whose nectar can be fermented; over-fermenting the nectar will produce vinegar. The "cattail" pith can work as "glue".
