So far I've used it as a wood stain, which works great, but I've also tried with dip pens and it works just as well. I'll be refilling my microns and other technical pens with it too. I will certainly be buying it again once I run out!
Great waterproof ink!

Great ink for drawing or dip pen
I use this product for pen and ink drawings,washes and designing holiday cards. The ink writes smoothly dilutes to beautiful grey shades and works wonderful with brush pen art work.

Drap Dead Black
from Fountain, CO
India Ink has a multitude of uses, but one many may not think about is using it as a wood stain/dye. I wanted a black stain that woudl still let the wood texture show through with any color variation. I found a woodworkign site online that said Dick Blick's Black Cat India Ink was the way to go to achieve this. They weren't wrong!The India Ink gave me a gorgeous drop dead black color. Two coats covered evenly and soaked into the very defined oak grain. No white spots. The nice thing about using india ink for wood stain is that it is permanent, lightfast, and waterproof. Being waterproof allows for any top coat without the need for a seal coat. Shipping was fast and delvered on time. The price was worth every penny (and it wasn't a lot of pennies!).

India Ink as Wood Stain/Dye

Excellent for coloring plywood black. 2 coats for a rich, dark black. The polyurethane finish was compatible with the ink. Quick shipping and securely packaged. Price was good. I'm no India ink expert but would buy again for this purpose.

Product goes on smooth, doesn't bleed, and works great with liner brushes.
Good Woodblock Print Ink
from Boynton Beach, Florida
Good open (wet) time. Prints nicely with two presses on woodblock. I only used the black but will try others. Easy clean up and I liked that it didn't take too long for the print to dry to do another pressing.
Blick Black Cat Waterproof India Ink is great!
Good quality and I like that I can buy it in the quart size.
