Ruled page sketch and experiment#3 making ink by me Gloria Poole,Registered Nurse, artist of/in Missouri

This is a sketch I drew with inktense [one of seven] on a sketch pad I had on my bed to write notes about things I thought of suddenly. It is ruled silk paper and is 5 x 6 inches in size. I drew a series of these tiny sketches on that paper over 2 nights. I drew it, washed over it with water on a brush, signed it,photographed it, uploaded it,and posted it today 17 Feb 2016 at 10:20am. Also, I photographed the page where I was testing my third batch of ink I made as I am experimenting with ways to make ink using products I would normally throw away or household staples items.Scroll down to see it. Copyright.

This is the page I was testing the third batch of ink I made. I began with about 25 used tea bags and put them in enough water to cover, then boiled them about 8 minutes. Then strained them and brushed the tea water over paper. It stained the paper a light beige, and that was not easily visible. So, I added a mixture of Borax solution [Sodium tetraborate] of 2 parts Borax to 24 parts water to help preserve mixture while I experimented some more. I then added the brown made by boiling 1 fresh tea bag to it, which didn't darken it much. So, I decided to add the used coffee grounds from breakfast to it, so I put them in enough water to cover, boiled them, strained it, added it to mixture. That didn't darken it enough to make it easily visible. So, I scraped about 2 tablespoons chalk of the color chestnut into it to see if it would make it a redder brown. It did very slightly. By this time I have almost a quart jar of brown liquid. So I decided to press ahead with experiment. I had about half cup of black liquid watercolor [which can be made from charred wood which many places in world have in fire pit] that was in jar leftover from when I had mixed too much of it before, so I added that to it. I tested the "ink" again and it produced a gunmetal grey color on paper. I painted a page with the "ink" and let it dry and went to bed.

The next morning,after it had dried, I decided I didn't like that color of "ink" so continued experiment. I put probably 1/2 cup 91% isopropyl alcohol [ a solvent, but also a first aid disinfectant] into it to help preserve it even more and to make ink stain permanent. I tested it again. The "ink" was darker but faint so I decided it needed something else. I added 3 gtts [medical abbrev for drops] red, 4 gtts yellow and 3 gtts green of food colors in a separate cup using their recipe to make brown, then added it to the mix. Still not dark enough when I retested it. So added same formula two times more. It looks much darker in jar but not that much darker on paper. So I added 1/3 of a 12 cc new tube of "Van Dyke brown" watercolor to it and retested it. Almost dark enough. Added two long squeezes from tube watercolor from Van Dyke brown to it, til half of 12 cc tube of watercolor was in jar. I stirred it well, tested it again. Finally, it is dark enough and does not wash off with water! So, I consider it a successful experiment. I drew with it as you see on this paper. Those are my fingers on the edge of the experiment page. Copyrighted. I did not make it very plain what my goal is in doing this so I logged back in and also corrected several typos. My gaol for these experiments in to produce a reliable, permanent, easily reproducible ink so that any person in any country of the world could make ink to write letters, correspondence, pleas for help, thank you notes, replies to officials, etc, using ink they made from products or substances they have on hand. Tea leaves are available as far as I can tell from researching in virtually every country of the world. so using the used tea bags to make writing ink makes perfect sense to me to help the very poor countries. The other ingredients such as black liquid watercolor could be made by grinding charred wood and mixing it with water. In fact, that is precisely how the watercolor "lamp black' is made commercially. And coffee grounds are also available in most countries of the world. I THINK isopropyl [also known as rubbing alcohol, but in different ratio] alcohol which is used by hospitals everywhere is also available very reasonably in almost all countries of world. For the record, I have/buy commercial ink(s) several brandds for my own use and I use it often in various colors and I also buy paints, watercolors, gouche, tempera, oil paints, pencils, pens, etc on regular basis. My idea is to find a way, i.e. develop a proven formula that anyone anywhere could make a substantial quantity of ink using easily sourced products. After my experiment is complete I have 32 ounces of "ink" so I consider it a worthwhile goal. If I can do this, others can do it also and make suitable ink to write homework for poor students in any country, and or people applying for "micro-loans" to start a small business. I hope it will help many people around the world. I probably will continue to experiment with this idea. I also posted my first experiment with making ink to this same blog.

Also, I see the stats from Google on all blogs of mine, and I have viewers/ readers/ followers in these countries: US; Spain; Germany; France; Sweden; Mexico; Romania; Russia; United Arab Emirates; Norway; Canada; Poland; India; Portugal; Czech Republic; United Kingdom; Ireland; Ukraine; Belgium; China; Indonesia; New Zealand; Hong Kong; Greece; Phillippines; Pakistan; Kenya; Azerbaijan; and Morocco so I thank all of you publicly for considering my art I make and my words worth you time!

You can follow me on Twitter on these accounts of mine: @gloriapoole; @gloria_poole; @Tartan_Bliss; @tweetie0817; @ProlifeNurse and @personhood1.Each is different. I am NOT on Instagram, nor on Facebook, nor on Pinterest and have not authorized anybody ever to use my name or art I created, or photos I photographed, or words I wrote, nor to sign my name to anything. I have never been on Instagram, nor Facebook, nor Pinterest and never had an Instagram, nor a Facebook nor a Pinterest account. Someone may be using my name on Instgram however, as I was alerted to that possibility by Google.

Also, again, much thanks to my viewers of art I create and readers of words I write in the 28 countries that view this blog. I make note of the stats on each blog and some viewers of other blogs do not view this blog so I am not sure what the difference is. I think it may be that they do not recognize the telephone numbers I put on some blogs as mine but I do have telephones from 3 different companies because threats were made to my life by my 2nd exhusband [initials DBP] who tried four times to kill me during years 2003-2006. I am very cautious and do not want him following me on twitter or sending me emails or communicating with me in any way. He has a mandatory restraining order against him. FYI.

INFORMATION ABOUT ME Gloria Poole, Registered Nurse, artist in all artist mediums, photographer, author, illustrator, cartoonist at times; writer, blogger, prolife activist, mother, divorced white Christian woman:

This is my signature that I signed on the sketch "lil girl watching the waves" which I posted yesterday to my I photographed my signature on that sketch several times with several cameras including on some of my cell phones, to establish fact that they are mine and I still use them and have possession of them and intend to keep them [though criminal thugs OFTEN try to hijack them] . Copyrighted. I signed this signature with red watercolor paint and then cropped it for a purpose.

This is my signature I painted to make a 2016 personal logo and I painted on the paintbrush. I have posted it to 2 other blogs of mine so far. Copyright.

This is my 2014 selfie of me Gloria Poole, RN, artist, photographer, writer, author, blogger . Also, I am STILL a single-again,twice-divorced, WHITE, Great Commission/ Southern Baptist, US citizen, born again, Christian, WOMAN. Nothing I change about my environment changes those facts.

Thanks to my viewers/ readers wherever you are. I have discovered that when I list where the viewers are from, if too specific, it causes the illegal censorship term of the prodeath candidates to try to squelch my blogs, twitter accounts and words and photos as they try to eliminate the PROLIFE point of view from the U.S. Prior restraint of speech is illegal 'on the face of it" per Supreme Court of United States but that does not seem to apply to evil democrats who are pulling out all stops to try to rig the election coming up this November. So, to my readers and viewers, bear with the process and know that I look at the stats and know where you are. The evil people who kill innocent-babies-in-the-womb are terrified they are going to lose control of Congress, and they are using every under-handed, low-down, illegal tactic they can find including murdering tech people who helped them.

All telephones listed on this blog or profile and account or any account/ blog/ site of mine belong exclusively to me and are my personal phones and are physically located in my own private apt in Missouri that is not shared with anyone. Some are wired, landline telephones, some are mobile numbers and some are Google voice numbers, but all are mine. I have other telephones and numbers not listed on this account or profile. I rotate my numbers around trying to prevent my 2nd exhusband [male w/ intials DBP of Colorado] from stalking me. Also, for the record, I have phones from 4 different carriers for a reason and that reason is staying alive!

This is my name that I wrote with digital ink with a computer software program [not with an app] to tell some of the things I do. I created it in 2015 but it is still relevant.

This is my hand as it looks this year 2015 on one of my Christian cross necklaces to remind all that I am a Southern Baptist/ Great Commission Baptist, who adheres to and believes in the Holy Bible as the inspired word of GOD including the commandments of GOD in Exodus chapter 20.I am born again, Christian,white, 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:

If you don't know anything about JESUS The MESSIAH you can start learning on this site of mine that is #gospel from King James Holy Bible: Great Commission is from Matthew 28:18-20, KJV.

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 in Missouri 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's Terry College of Business. .

Also, please read the Bible record of how and when JESUS was born which is what Christmas is about, by reading the scriptures from THE HOLY BIBLE about the reason for the Christmas celebration and put them on my:
