Here are a few more colours, on white Tomoe.
The Copper is a lovely brown metallic when wet but dries very pink; it reminds me slightly of Kingdom Note Mycena Pura. It's not a saturated ink.
The Burgundy is a big disappointment; it's just a slightly more saturated version of Royal Red. It's far too light & orange and is like no Burgundy I've ever seen. I even thought there might have been a batch mix up. I'm not a fan of Oster reds.
The Moss is a nice grey-leaning shade of green. Quite subtle. Shades nicely.
Australian Sky is a clear turquoise colour. I like it; its freshness appeals to me. Has some nice subtle shading.
Pics have already been posted of Bondi Blue but I included it here as a comparator for the Australian Sky.
Barossa Grape is interesting. Like Oster Claret (which I've included as a comparator) it goes down with strong purple/red tones, then dries with a distinctive grey-silver cast. His "wine" theme inks are well worth trying I think.
So I have 14 of his inks & I think they're variable in their characteristics. Some are excellent (Deep Sea is outstanding) but others are run-of-the-mill and need super-wet and/or broad nibs to show their true colours. Or the colours are just slightly boring......
It's good that we were able to signpost these new Australian inks to you US & Canadian colleagues & you're giving Mr Oster your business. I hope you like your new ones when they arrive Cyber6.....
