Comments about Pelikan Fount India Fountain Pen Drawing Ink:
My go-to fountain pen ink. Not waterproof, but stays put on the page, flows really well in pens, and is a very economical price. This ink very middle of the road, so not too purplish or bluish. Not as dark as the most black fountain pen inks, but still solid. If you like your inks fancy, look elsewhere since this is a simple, plain matte black ink. The bottle is plastic, compact, and has a secure cap and a narrow spout so it's easy to carry around or use to fill up smaller containers like a plastic vial. I hope the this product stays the way it is. The combination of the price, performance, bottle design and 30ml size makes it a great buy.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

an old standby, essential tool
from san francisco
I use this for ink and brush sketching, and dip pens. It is nice and black, but I don't need to worry about cleaning the brush right away, as it is not waterproof and shellacky. Can make nice neutral grey washes. Great with dip pens because it flows well. If you put a water wash on a drawing soon after, the ink will bleed - can add tone to drawings this way. But if you want totally waterproof ink to add color over, you should probably choose something else. The bottle is light and has a secure seal, so it's great for carrying in the field.
