If you had a lot of ink left i suppose you could use it as paint and if you haven't used the syringe that comes with it you could use it for making lip gloss.

make a quill & use the ink with it.

I use the ink to refill my Schaeffer cartridges for my calligraphy pens.  Assuming you have cyan, magenta, yellow, and back, you can make any color of ink you want.  You can darken it by adding a teeny-weenie bit of black (I'm talking a touch of ink on a needle) or lighten it using water. 

If you have syringes, that makes the refilling and cleaning between colors very easy.  And fun.

If it's permanent ink and not water soluable, you could dye paper with it.

If you find out how to make a quill, I'm interested too. =)  I do know that people have gotten feathers and made them out of it, but I have no idea what kind of feather.  I think they cut the very end of the feather at an angle, but I'm not really sure.  I do know that they have them at Hobby Lobby and Michaels.  They are by the calligraphy pens.

I just typed "make a quill pen" into google.  No quotes.  First one.
