This ink is a good investment...its a tad bit thick but can be thinned by adding a small splash of alcohol, it makes a VERY good base for ink mixing, works great if mixed with leather DYE. stains well...and it comes in a container that maked it easy to refill any mop, marker, dripper etc. best resutls ina dripper of course. nice Big bottle for a low price. basicaly i now have some hard staining Sh*t in my dripper...VERY GOOD INK.
