A book of spells

What self respecting Wizard can be without his Spell Book and Quill?

This was a gift to go with the wizard costume. It’s a notebook made from recycled paper that I added a cover and a few introductory pages to. The pages are stained with a teabag and I used my recycled felt tip ink and I like the faint/oily rainbow results.

The most successful part of the gift was the goose feather quill (thanks Mum!) and we had a go at carving some nibs together.

Rethinking inking

Beginning to think about the use of ink and it’s alternatives.
