How to: extract squid ink for craft and cooking
As a squid-obsessed cephalopod junkie, I'm lucky enough to find ten tentacled goodness all over from tattoos to plushies to hats. Actually using squid to make crafty material might be a step far, but I can't help but be fascinated by this inky how to from Make.
The How to Make and Extract Squid Ink photo tutorial does exactly what it says on the tentacled tin. It shows you, with clear and easy to follow images and instructions, how to take your squid and turn it into useable ink.
The how to was part of Make's Natural Material's month which is well worth checking out for their other crafty offerings from the wild.
