Dr. Ph. Martin's Bombay India Inks are beautiful bright colors. They are conveniently packaged; there is a pipette in the cap with which you can easily dose the ink. Dr. Ph. Martins Bombay inks are available in 24 colors.
What do you use Bombay Ink for?
Have you already seen the colors? They are all beautiful and are great to combine with each other. The inks contain a large amount of pigment. The Bombay ink is 'non-clogging,' which makes the ink nice to use for calligraphy. The 24 colors are brilliant and semi-transparent, except for black and white. The black and white versions are entirely opaque.
The inks are waterproof and smudge-proof! They are great for your projects where you need waterproof ink. They are also ideal for envelope work! Just don't forget to clean your brushes well after use :).
The Bombay inks can also be used with brushes for traditional watercolor techniques, technical drawing pens, and airbrushes.
How do you use Bombay ink?
Stir the ink well before use! If you don't do it, your ink will appear very liquid. The reason for this is that some pigments have sunken. You can simply solve this by stirring the ink well. Dr. Martin's Bombay inks are water-based, so you can dilute them with water.
You can dip a straight calligraphy pen into the jar. Otherwise, I recommend using a Dinky Dip or something similar.
