Fun Link Friday: Food-inspired inks 🍜

Just a quickie Fun Link Friday today, folks. In keeping with the love of food-inspired crafts from Japan, I was fascinated to come across SoraNews24’s recent exploration of stationery based on local foods of Nagasaki.

The one that particularly caught my eye was ink based on Nagasaki champon noodles, which I imagine makes it very tempting to lick the tip of your pen. Want to send a friend a homemade, savory-smelling postcard? Now is your chance! There are some great images on the site talking about the depth and color of the ink, in addition to its garlicky scent. Is the sweet, brown sugary castella ink just as good? Maybe it’s worth exploring the company’s main site to indulge your cravings! Happy Friday!
