How Do You Know That Ink is Cured?

Web Wednesday – The Ink Kitchen Meets Kitchen Ink

Down on Frenchman Street in New Orleans on a Tuesday night which was turning into Wednesday morning I met Rosin, selling her “Kitchen Ink” wares at a table. She literally screens on the floor in her kitchen, air dries her ink, and has a total DIY operation going. A few photos of her designs and…
