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
Tags: Made with Product
from Rochester Hills, Mi
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.

Waterproof & markerproof to boot!
from Ambler, PA
I bought this ink in July 2016 to try it out, to see if I could find a cheaper alternative to other inks such as Deleter #4 and Ph. Martin's Black Star. To my surprise, the ink held its own against those two inks. Very deep, is as advertised regarding its waterproof nature, and as an added bonus it held up well against some alcohol markers I had. Would say it leans closer to matte but not fully there. Just make sure it is dried before using wet media of course.As the only downside I've seen, it does dry a bit slower than some other inks. I've no problem with this, but others might find this an issue. Other (older) reviews mention issues with brush usage; I have used this with nibs and have no issues with applications thusfar. The price is amazing, although while 3oz over 1.25oz for only 30 cents more is awesome, I feel a bit bad missing out on the smaller bottle. That's just a personal nitpick though.

Amazing product and I would buy it again.
from Bellmore, NY
I use this product for watercolor and inking design. The ink is very black and is thankfully waterproof. It's a good product but the cap always leaks if I accidentally knock it over so I have to keep it on a flat shelf. Other than that it is overall a great product.
