Dr. Ph. Martin's Bombay India Inks offer powerful color in a convenient dropper-stopper glass bottle. These highly pigmented India inks not only remain lightfast and permanent, but are also totally waterproof when dry. They adhere to nearly all surfaces and are non-clogging when used in pens.
Inks can be diluted with water and used with brushes in traditional watercolor techniques or in dip pens, technical drawing pens, and airbrushes. All colors are brilliant and transparent, except Black and White, which are opaque and have excellent covering power.

I look forward to using these for watercolor, but I've started out using them in calligraphy and sketching with a dip pen. These have been the best inks I've used yet!My aunt also borrowed some for calligraphy and loved them!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I love these inks!
from Brookville, PA
I bought these to use in airbrushing on white clayboard. The colors are so intense and beautiful. I also use as permanent color on watercolor paper and in many other projects. You have to try them!

Dr. Ph. Martin's Bombay India Inks
from Fontana, California
This has become my "go to" medium. Colors are brilliant when dry and have a very thin schelac like finish which appears to be water resistant. The inks can be blended,used directly out of the bottle, or thinned with water and work great on watercolor paper.
Great product and fast service.

Good quality India ink. It works great for my projects. It was well packaged and shipped promptly.
Love these inks
from Grants Pass, OR
I love the variety of colors with these inks. I have purchased every single color and for the most part love them. The only drawback is that some of the colors seem to be made differently than others. I use speedball crow quill dip pens and certain colors don't hold well in the nibs; some being too thick and some are kind of gritty. It's mostly the weird colors like terra-cotta and Browns which I don't use much anyway. Other than the very few colors that have I have problems with I will continue to use these inks.
Great product fast delivery
I love this brand of ink because it is the most waterproof one I have found. I can use watercolor directly on top of my inking lines without any bleeding or smudging. The sepia color is good, but a bit more brown than I was hoping for.
Great value for a great product
