I desperately want a batch of cinnabar ink. 

But iron gall ink seems like something I can make in the kitchen, once I learn how to identify an oak gall.  Anyone ever made ink before?  What's your favorite type of ink?  I love metallic inks.  I had the misfortune of working in a frame shop for several years and learned the basics of gold-leafing, but I want to learn more.  I also want an old hand-cranked press to play with multiple copies of inked things.

I'm probably ten years behind here (as usual) but I just discovered Gogol Bordello and I now have a new favorite song.  It reminds me of my favorite Istanbul bars.
