I collected pine needles, let them dry.
Burn them with a torch, stirring frequently. Keep the ashes.
Grind the ashes with a motar & pestle (Porcelain or marble)
Mix the ground ashes with a little water
   or oil (not both). The oil takes forever to dry.
This makes a thin ink to use for brush calligraphy.
