A. Background of the study
Ink is a liquid or paste that contains pigments or dyes and is used to color a surface to produce an image, text, or design. Ink is used for drawing or writing with a pen, brush, or quill. Thicker inks, in paste form, are used extensively in letterpress and lithographic printing. Ink can be a complex medium, composed of solvents, pigments, dyes, resins, lubricants, solubilizers, surfactants, particulate matter, fluorescers, and other materials. The components of inks serve many purposes; the ink’s carrier, colorants, and other additives control flow and thickness of the ink and its appearance when dry. Many ancient cultures around the world have independently discovered and formulated inks for the purposes of writing and drawing. Lamp black is said to be used for making an ink. It has Fine soot collected from incompletely burned carbonaceous materials, used as a pigment and in matches, explosives, lubricants, and fertilizers. The researchers make use of the God-given gifts in a unique and imaginative sense and also use their God-given talents and intelligence to create a splendid new idea. An interesting research project like this gives them a sense of curiosity and creativity. This research project gives them the inkling of how to be practical and resourceful. We have observed that Lamp black have the quality and capability for making an ink. This observation really convinced us to push through this kind of topic.

According to what the researchers have discovered, with the aid of the internet, lamp black can also describe a certain hue of black and a type of ink that can be made from some common items. It’s a black colloidal substance consisting wholly or principally of amorphous carbon and used to make inks.

They expect their product to be as good ink as any other and at the same time good for the people’s pockets and affordable. The lamp black that the researchers are going to make will be much...
