Ink Wells are objects beneficial to Mickey and Oswald found throughout Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two. Painting or Thinning Toon will change what the Ink Well contains.

Invisible Ink

By painting in the environment, Ink Wells would be filled with Invisible Ink. Invisible Ink will turn Mickey and Oswald invisible if you go into it. They will not be seen by Blotlings or Beetleworx for a short period of time. Moving too fast, using Mickey's Brush, Oswald's Remote or double jumping will make it slide off faster.

Indelible Ink

Indelible Ink becomes available from Ink Wells by thinning out the environment. By jumping into an Ink Well containing Indelible Ink, Mickey and Oswald will become as hard as a lobster's shell - even thinner will slide off. This is also known as Invincible Ink because they will be invincible for a short period of time. The coat of ink will break as they move, get hit, jump, and can even break completely if the user spins while most of the ink is on him. Indelible Ink will hinder the user's run and jump abilities, preventing them from performing high jumps and attempting to run at full speed will cause him to trudge slowly.

Normal Ink Well

A Normal Ink Well is an Ink Well with nothing inside of it. Mickey can get these by having a decent balance of items erased and items painted. Paint in or Thin out more Toon to change the Ink.


  • Interestingly, the gold color of Indelible Ink does not correspond with the substance used to obtain it, in this case, Thinner (with it's green color). This contrasts with Invisible Ink, which is colored blue just like it's counterpart substance, Paint.
  • Statues pouring ink into the inkwell are shaped similarly to other Disney Characters such as The White Rabbit from Alice in Wonderland, etc.
