A comparison of chinese ink, kandahar drawing ink, indian ink, japanese ink -  over splodges of coloured ink and graphite lines. The line shows through the ink, to various degrees, and can be "polished up" (middle lines). Japanese ink is the densest, and left to dry is quite a golden colour. The drawing ink is insipid. It and the chinese ink smear when wet.
 But look what happens when you spray the drawing ink (and quink) - pattern and texture -
