A LITTLE STORY :
Black carrot produces a rich warm color that is the majority of "complete". Pay close attention to the patterns that came about from the black carrot ink. Stripes of parsley, wild foraged violets from my grandpas timber, and a broad stroke of walnut brushed on with a stick hold a completion.
A NOTE ON WILD BOTANICAL INKS:
These inks are one of a kind, alive and changing. Because of their wild nature each ink will change with time. I choose to celebrate this wonder and delight in the beauty of changing color. For best preserving of color I recommend keeping these pieces out of direct sunlight. Putting the piece behind UVA protected glass is a good option if color change is a concern.
