Fall cattail pens and india ink
One of my favorite things to do is to harvest a few cattail stalks in the fall and use them for india ink drawings & sketches
It's so easy to do, and they last years
• find dried cattails
• cut at base and trim off flower at top
• carve them to a point
• add a slit for more ink yield
• dip in ink and draw!
Some cattail stalks are hollow and some are not...both of them work differently, grab one of each and try them out!
