Pokeberry ink question

Recommended Posts

I was going to make some pokeberry ink, but got to thinking. If pokeberries  are so poisonous, would the ink continue to be 

after making it? Our yard is full of them, and I'd like to use it.

I do not recommend Pokeberry ink.  I tried to make it a while back and unless you distill it or something like that, it will mess up your nib and feed.  It works  with a dip pen, but I was never able to get it to be dark enough to make it worthwhile.




Using right now:

Parker Duofold "F" nib running Pelikan Königsblau

Leonardo Officina Italiana Pura "F" nib running Diamine Autumn Oak

Benu Briolette "F" nib running Diamine Firefly

Click Aristocrat "F" nib running D'Atramentis Cyan Blue-Copper

      @Ruaidhri This was an absolutely wonderful bit of writing, and I hope that you're able to maintain the style once all of the medications are out of your system.  Take care and recover quickly!

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.

      Reminds me of the day my associates and I developed a cure for all mankind's ills and mistakenly wrote it down with invisible ink.

      Was that the end of the Laboratory? Somehow the exactitude created a fully destructive device, as always!
