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. Each set includes 12 different colors in 1.0 oz (30 ml) glass bottles with droppers and a custom mixing palette. Set 1 colors: yellow, red, magenta, green, blue, brown, black, white, violet, bright red, teal, grass green.

The colors are true to how they appear in the bottle (once any sediment has been properly shaken up and suspended), truly waterproof, no fading. Do note that this some of these inks are light colors. Again, true to appearance, so they don't darken when written with. White ink on white paper is extremely difficult to read--but white ink on dark paper is a really nice effect!
The ink doesn't run and bleed everywhere, it works with every nib I've tried (quite a range, every modern leonardt, almost every modern speedball, several others), and almost every paper (anything your nib scratches to bits is obviously out of the question). It is a thicker ink than many others you might find--it flows beautifully, smooth without breaks, but you don't want to, say, leave it in a roundhand nib with a reservoir untouched for ten minutes. It is ink. It will dry.
But that just leads me to another plus--it's easy to clean out. Once dry it flakes off nibs at the touch of fingernail, not counting unfortunate grooves. It responds well to nib cleaning solution, abd of course when wet (again, not counting grooves where any ink would get stuck) it wipes right off with paper. I've also found that it come out of my scrap cloth with little effort, but don't go spilling it on your carpet or favorite white shirt and expect it to come out. I just mean that the scrap I use for cleaning isn't darkly or noticeably stained from these.
They also are wonderful in painting, and again waterproof, so you can do things like soaking a drawing in tea to make it appear aged without worrying about losing the drawing.
Overall, I am content with it and the colors really are beautiful. Would recommend if you want to use it with your dip pen and if you really want super pigmented colors but don't have the money to get the super expensive ones. These are 1 oz which is a lot compared to some of the sets where I think they're only half of that. A little does go a long way~
I always thought inside the box with inks. What would I do with ink? I don't do calligraphy or have fancy pens I'm going to redip. I only had a feather pen once, and I was annoyed more than I felt fancy. However these are things I've been doing with the inks in small amounts.
Using as paint. Archival water color! Yes.
Adding bits of extra color to paper crafts. I've splotched in circles (dries fast). (No bleed through on card stock btw. Big dollops hold shape and dry.
Art journal. Gesso and ink. So pretty.
Canvas and mixed media.
If you're a budding or very advanced artist on a budget but you want awesome quality ink, this is your test kit. You get way more than you pay for.
Very grateful for product's existence and will buy again. Wish they had the sparkly irredecent inks Liquitex has, because those are damn expensive. Maybe I need to buy mica powder and add?
