Two things. First, as you’re finding out, black dye isn’t really black. It usually will come out blue or purple when mixed. You’re getting green. India ink is the best choice for a black dye.

Second, you want to be using a pigment, not a dye. It’s more opaque. Like Redoad, I use System 3 black pigment and it works great. You need so little that it’s very economical. They sell it at Woodcraft, and you can order it on Amazon.
