I would like to make cards and do crafts plastic free. I have some stamps, but what can I do without ink? I think markers work, but they're plastic. How about bottles of ink for the refil pens?
You can use a bit of cornstarch, olive oil and spices (think turmeric, paprika) to make your own rustic cool pigments, but for vivid colours, try Glob Natural Paints. They come in glass vials with metallic lids, http://store.globiton.com/default.asp
heres a review of the paints themselves:
