What is this Bombay India ink we keep hearing about?
BDr. Ph. Martin’s Bombay India Ink offers powerful colour in a convenient dropper-stopper glass bottle.
These highly pigmented India inks not only remain light fast 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 watercolour techniques or in dip pens, technical drawing pens, and airbrushes.
All colours are brilliant and transparent, except Black and White, which are opaque and have excellent covering power.
1 oz / 30 ml bottles with dropper. Available in 24 colours.
Once all stock is gone we will unfortunately not be able to restock this product so… Grab them while you still can 😉

1. CatHand plays with Dr. Ph. Martin’s India Inks & Alcohol
- Start by spraying your paper with water as it needs to remain most for the inks to react with the alcohol
- Randomly drop some inks, one drop at a time
- Spray the colour with water to activate it further if you see it’s not spreading out much
- Drop a little alcohol here and there
- Use a sheet of paper towel if you need to mop up some of the puddles of ink (pressing down until you touch the paper can create funky marks!)
- Repeat until you are happy with your design!
- Let everything dry thoroughly and use a white marker (such as a Sharpie) to outline and doodle over your design. Fun!
