    Who has used Walnut Inks? How do you use them? Have you used on items other than paper? Are they worth investing in? Any info would be great!!!

    I love the walnut ink. I use it for aging and it works great for heritage pages. I've not used it on anything other than paper. I bought mine thru acharmingplace.com. It lasts forever. Lisa

    Walnut ink is basically a stain made from crushed walnut shells. You should be able to dye silk flowers, ribbon, and scraps of fabric with it. I have tea dyed a small floral fabric to make it look vintage it turned out really cool, you could do that with the walnut inks as well. If your using one of the colors, rather than the brown you might try it on just a corner to make sure it doesn't cover the print too much. If it does you can water your walnut inks down.

    I have used it on all the things Lori mentioned and it works great.
    Very economical because it lasts forever.
    Just mix it with water. Next time you use it try sprinkling a little salt on the wet walnut ink and then let it dry. A very unique design. I have also used it on white cardstock that I wrinkly first. When it was dry it looked like elephant skin. Cool.
    Have fun.
