Comments about Speedball Super Black Waterproof India Ink:
I am a novice pen turner with very little experience in the craft. I found out about this ink watching a video on pen turning and ways to make wood look like ebony. This ink was highly recommended to the point of it being the 'only' ink, India or otherwise, that would make wood LOOK LIKE EBONY. Ebony is a rather expensive wood, so as a new turner, I can't afford all those special/exotic woods. So this ink is a God send in that a little goes a very, very LONG way. This quart bottle will last me 'forever'. Spread the word, this ink is THE best for a truly black finish. This grandmother of 3 is a very happy camper.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I used Super Black as wood stain for furniture. Its the only thing I have found to completely black out the grain.
Excellent product, I could recommend it to everyone!
from Sioux Falls, SD
Well paper coverage, and very easy to apply it.
Great Black Ink
This ink has a nice deep black value when not diluted and a pleasant brown tone when used as a wash. It will take a watercolor wash over it and hold up fairly well if you do not over wet it.
Very black, black

I use this product for quick sketches and washes. It is a very pigmented ink and it stays where u put it. Some "permenant" inks are not so. Very pleased!
Very nice product

Glad I bought the big one

I had been interested in using ink and a brush for my cartoons and illustrations and started with this. It is fantastic. It's incredibly black and controls likely a dream. It even cleans nicely off a brush. Will continue to use this for its quality and price. It can't be beat.
Better then most Inks!
from Pitsburgh, PA
I use this ink to do comic book style line art with a brush and a crow quill nib. It works great for that. it's smooth constant, and black.

This is the only product I know to stain wood for a truly ebony finish. It goes on easy and drys quick. Won't fade with UV exposure and does not react with the final finish. The secret of piano finishers for years.
Nice and dark
from Peoria, AZ
Great for refilling old ink bottles, and the ink quality is great.
