Whether you're making home stationery or experimenting with different art media, making your own ink can prove useful. Making your own ink gives you the ability to create a variety of tones and hues, such as silver and other metallic colors. Silver ink is quick to produce and requires very few materials. Use silver ink to accent your crafts and drawings with shimmering hints of color.
Pour 2 ounces of rubbing alcohol into a 4-ounce glass ink bottle.
Add 2 ounces of powdered slate mica. Slate mica is grayish in tone and can be purchased from any craft and hobby supply store.
Add 1 ounce of powdered pearl fleck mica powder to give the ink a shimmery silver tone.
Cap the glass bottle and shake it vigorously for a minute or two, or until the powdered pigment is completely dispersed throughout the liquid.
