Stony Creek Indigo Ink


In stock (can be backordered)


Stony Creek indigo ink began as part of our 10 year birthday celebration and collaboration with Judi Pettite of Biohue. Judi started BioHue in 2006 after falling in love with colors she was getting from plants. Since that time, she has foraged, purchased or grown the materials for her art as mindfully as possible. She makes her inks and watercolors intentionally from the fewest ingredients possible. This minimalist approach also allows the personality of the plant to come through. We love Judi’s work! So we thought taking Botanical Colors’ most popular extracts and turning them into beautiful inks would be a perfect fit.

Using US-grown Stony Creek indigo, Judi created an indigo ink that yields a lovely gray-blue color. The ink comes in a 1 ounce stoppered bottle. Shake well before using. Do not use in fillable fountain pens. Works best on paper. The intended use is as a drawing medium or combined with water colors.

Judi says:

“I love foraging and cultivating for my natural inks and paints; if you’re looking to expand your palette, extracts may be the answer. I’ve developed a new line of inks in partnership with Botanical Colors and their extracts. The colors are lush and saturating. I keep the hues as true and clean as possible—never any synthetic preservatives. I only use thyme or clove oil. Inks are water-based and made in small batches with care in Northern California.”
