How to Make Your Own Colorful Calligraphy Ink
Recently I’ve been doing calligraphy quite a bit, so today I’m going to share with you a way I’ve found for making your own calligraphy ink in any color you’d like!
I have always handmade my own cards. I love giving a pretty card, made by me, to friends and family for different occasions or just because. Keep your eye out for more handmade card and stationary posts as I am going to be sharing with you every once in a while different tips and techniques!
To make the ink all you need to do is put a blob of acrylic paint in a small dish and water it down so that it is runny, but still has some thickness to it. This ink works just as well as any acrylic ink you would buy!
If you want to jazz up your already pretty writing you can go over the writing with more ink and immediately dust glitter onto it. Work quickly as the acrylic ink dries fast!
I hope this was helpful to you! I’m excited because now I don’t have to purchase colored calligraphy ink and I can make it in any color I want!
Idea: I used a map from an old National Geographic Magazine to create a liner for my envelope, this makes the card and envelope a perfect set for sending a thoughtful note to someone who has geographic distance between us!
