Cuttlefish

[Genuine sepia ink, seaweed ink, clamshell charcoal, Dragonsblood resin, chalk, pine ink on traditional gesso on 640gsm archival paper]

 

Historically, the melanin ink from the cuttlefish was used predominantly by scribes and artists from around the Mediterranean region where fish is a staple of the diet. The ink is extracted, dried and ground then an alkali is added to temper the pigment. It has a distinctive odour!
