Second experiment making ink by me Gloria Poole,RN,artist of /in Missouri

Ok. Here's the reason I tried again to make ink. I bought food coloring because my daughter Leigh gave me a hummingbird feeder for my birthday and I needed red food coloring to color the nectar [sugar water], so I have a whole set of food coloring. So, it occurred to me that I should be able to make a suitable paint or ink with it also so I decided to experiment with it. This sketch, abstract, is test 1 of the homemade ink. I painted this with 2 gtts [medical abbreviation for drops] food coloring of 3 different colors in a teaspoon of water x 3. I used a natural sea sponge to create the texture where the red appears darker by patting the sponge in ink then onto the paper. I drew the vertical lines with a brush dipped in the ink. It behaves exactly like watercolor from art supply store. This is on 9 x 12 paper in my sketchbook. Then I realized there was a recipe on the food coloring container for how to color easter eggs which said that recipe would dye the eggs so that the dye did not wear off. So I thought, aha, I will try their recipe so to begin with I mixed a dropper full of vinegar which was the extra ingredient their recipe called for, into the same mix of 2 gtts of food coloring in a teaspoon of water to keep the ratio the same so I could compare the tests. I thought the vinegar must be what stabilized the dye since the recipe said to add it. So the following test is made with that formula. Summary of this experiment: food coloring makes excellent and easy watercolors that work fine with a brush.This sketch book is a mixed media sketchbook, for the record. I signed it with the same ink I made in green and notated the edge of it with the green ink also on a brush.

This is test 2 of the home made ink I made using 2 gtts food coloring in a teaspoon of water with 1 dropper [medicine bottle dropper] of vinegar added. It changed the viscosity of the fluid so that drops of it did not bleed onto the paper but sat there until they dried. And the addition of vinegar made the fluid appear a brighter red as I was painting it with brush to make this sketch, experiment. It is on 9 x 12 paper in my sketchbook also. I signed it with the same red ink I made and notated that it is experiment 2 this time in bottom right corner.

This is my written log record of this experiment , written using the ink as I prepared it in test 2. The little box at the bottom with writing in it is a separate experiment in which I added acrylic sealer to the ink mixture to see what happened. It made the ink cloudy which I did not like, so, I did not add it to the entire bottle of ink I made. I signed it , and photographed all of these and uploaded all of them and posted them to this blog of mine today 9th of Sept 2015. I made ALL art on this blog and photographed all photos on it and I own all copyrights to it.

This is my record of my experiment at about 1am last nite as I was not able to sleep, so I decided I would see if I could make purple ink using food coloring and vinegar and following the recipe on the box of food coloring which was 1/2 cup boiling water, 1 teaspoon of vinegar and 20 gtts of food coloring, but I started with a 1:1 ration of red:blue color. So the first line of "purple ink?" is made with 10 gtts red, 10 gtts blue food coloring in a half cup boiling water with one teaspoon [measuring spoon] of apple cider vinegar added. I didn't think that looked very purple so I tried again. I have store bought inks in several colors and several brands and I use them intermittently for many reasons, to write with dip pens, to draw, and sketch with and sometimes to paint with on a brush. But I don't have purple ink, so I decided to give it a try. I wrote on the record the proportions as I was trying to create the color purple. I tested the ink to see if it was waterproof by washing over the word ink on top row with a very wet brush. it did fade but it might have been because the ink was not completely dry. I put about a tablespoon of the recipe into a separate container and then added 2 more gtts of red which made the ink too red. So, this is my record of this experiment. I tried making ink before with tea bags and that works ok but I needed a preservative and I was trying to find one that any household would have on hand. This entire experiment is just step 2 in finding a way to make an excellent writing fluid ink that anyone can make at home without complicated chemistry sets or expensive equipment or supplies. Almost every country of the world has both tea and food coloring. So, since I think ALL people should be able to write and in cursive, and in a way that is permanent, I intend to keep experimenting with the idea of easy homemade inks. I can buy most any art supply I want, and I do, but making ink still fascinates me as it is a quest that dates back to the first century when humans picked up charred wood from a fire pit and wrote on cave walls with it. This is my public record of my second attempt to make an easy homemade ink. I also documented the first experiment of me trying to make tea from items on hand, on this blog as well, and that is in the archives. I conducted this experiment myself, measured the ingredients, wrote them down so anyone could achieve same results. Of course, I do not know how much different brands of food coloring sold by stores would vary in performance this way. I was using a brand new set of 4 food colors bought in a set. I do not consider this experiment complete yet, because I did not yet create purple ink. summary or experiment making purple ink : I did not get the ratios of blue and red correct, but I intend to keep trying. I have a half cup of ink I made a 1 am that is of the color that is fourth down in this list of my words.

Also, I am STILL a single-again,twice-divorced, WHITE, Southern Baptist, US citizen, born again, Christian, WOMAN. Nothing I change about my environment changes those fact. See the about me page for more information about me and some of the selfies that are me over time since I began creating blogs. All telephone numbers associated with this account are my personal phones and are located in my apt in Missouri. I never had a 678 ph number and I never had a 245 area code phone number. Those are area codes of the numbers of criminals who broke into my accounts.

This is one of my christian cross necklaces that I own, and wear at times and my left hand to remind all that I am Southern Baptist, born again, Christian, woman and adhere to the words of JESUS as The Messiah foretold by Old Testament.

Since I am a #prolife #Christian who takes seriously the commandment in Matthew 28: 18-20, KJV, I make an effort regularly to publish the gospel in some way, to promote the prolife cause and to be a good representative of Christianity. Being a good Christian does not mean turning a blind eye to sin, however, as some fake christians believe. It is not loving to stand by idly while people go to hell.
So you can read about JESUS THE MESSIAH and how to be born again and get to heaven on this blog of mine:

This is my Georgia Baptist College of Nursing seal where I attended and graduated as a professional nurse and then became licensed by the state of Georgia years ago. I still have a R.N. license but I cannot work in it because of concussions and trauma to me so I post info to try help public on the web on the #prolife, #personhood #publichealth causes.

This is the UGA display I made by using appliques I cut from the UGA book /alumni news they mailed to me as an alum, to remind all I also have a degree in business from the University of Georgia .

Photo I photographed to remind all that I am U S citizen by birth in the state of Georgia.

This is my photo of U S flag I photographed on walkabout a few days ago to remind all I am U S citizen in the U S state of Missouri but I was born in the state of Georgia. I have all Constitutional protections including the first amendment.

You can follow mw on twitter at : @gloriapoole; @gloria_poole; @Tartan_Bliss; @tweetie0817, @ProlifeNurse and at @personhood1. Each of those is different and I use them to categorize my topics. There is some overlap of topics but generally speaking the two with my name on them,[Gloria Poole] I use as general any public debate and to publicize my art. The two specific to the #prolife cause are always about that and the push to gain #personhood legal status for all humans. Tartan_Bliss has my mother's maiden name of Bliss in it, and I use it to communicate with #EU and #UK, but also occasionally other countries on variety of topics. I use tweetie0817 the same way except it includes China, Middle East and other countries and that just happened sort of.

Also, ATT employees tried to sabotage me by turning off the messaging plan I paid extra for on one of my cell phones, in their effort to illegally censor my words because I criticized old Hillary in a text message to my 2 daughters. So, be aware that Hillary's campaign reads your text messages in real time and abuses the so-called "Patriot Act" in order to censor any opposition to her. I have that cell phone still and it is not a shared phone but since it became unreliable I removed it from some places were it must have been visible to criminal hackers who work for old Hillary and her law-breaking campaign.
