Do you have an ink dependence? I can help...

How I do chromatography for the blog.

Here's a quick and easy way to do your own chromatography for fun at home.


  • Water
  • A cup (I use a shot glass)
  • Coffee filters
  • Some ink you want to test out
I usually use a #4 cone filter because they're a heavier paper, and they give better contrast. 

Check out the video for the method and a demonstration.

I love you for this! Thanks so much for sharing your method. As soon as I find time (in other words when I retire), I'll give it a try.
