Oak Gall Ink

Oak galls,
a rusty nail,
and water in a jar.
It's been over a month, I've never made ink
before and was not sure how long to wait.

This tree is covered and I picked some off the ground.

I had a hard time controlling the flow but it's been
many many years since I've used a dip pen.

It's very light and brownish. I've read that is common
and should be darkening in time. We'll see.

I think I better come up with better packaging.
