What is India Ink?:

What is India Ink? India ink is a simple black ink once widely used for writing and printing and now more commonly used for drawing. India ink is also used in medical research and is considered as a suitable material for demonstration of the blood vessels under the microscope.

What is it made from?:

What is it made from? Basic India ink is composed of a variety of fine soot known as lampblack, combined with water to form a liquid. A binding agent such as gelatin or, more commonly, shellac may be added to make the ink more durable once dried. India ink is occasionally sold in solid form (most commonly, a stick), which must be moistened before use.
