Welcome to dickblick
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 am working on a series of biological illustrations and had been doing a few in colored pencil before I received the set of inks. I used them in washes and alone and they work beautifully both ways.

I purchased these inks because I saw them being used by an artist I follow via Instagram and in her Skillshare class. If you know me, it's go bold or go home. The vivid colors and price of these inks are hard to beat! I can't have just one color, so I bought 'Round Set 1' and already have the second waiting in my cart! I've only used a few drops so far, but I can tell they'll go the distance!

I use this ink primarily in an airbrush. Unlike Higgins inks, which I have used in the past, the Bombay India Inks do require some mixing (shaking) before you can use them. Also, they tend to clog my fine tipped detail airbrush. Switching to an airbrush with a larger bore and upping the pressure seems to solve that problem. Colors are brilliant and coverage is excellent.

You don't have to use a large amount since it is highly concentrated. They are easy to open but are slightly hard to clean off since they dye your palette. I like it more than tube watercolors and think the colors come out really vibrant! :)
