Walnut Ink Wonder
 Diane Reiter, Presenter

Walnut Ink Wonder was the focus of the final general meeting. Diane Reiter provided an opportunity to explore and experiment with the different possibilities when using walnut ink. We could focus on lettering, decorating paper or both. There was a variety of papers to try, unusual tools to use, and many, many examples to inspire us while we used our “decomposed peat” along with watercolors, gold powder, colored pencils, and more. We all appreciated the handouts. Thank you, Diane and SDFC.
