Robert Oster Signature Inks are a new line coming out of South Australia and are making enthusiasts sit up and take notice! They are very competitively priced too.
So, I acquired a handful of these, thus:
- Emerald Green
- Deep Sea
- Bondi Blue
- Fire Engine Red
- Yellow Sunset
In the following short reviews the writing samples are created using an Osmiroid B4 italic nib and an Esterbrook 2048 fitted to a standard XT Esterbrook dip-less pen holder.
All writing is by dipping. More time is needed to discover how these inks behave in cartridges, converters or eyedroppers.
Swabs and comparisons with other inks will be provided later in the week – I’m all out of Q-tips!
Time to brave the deep, deep oceans with...
Simply lovely! The seas around New Zealand often adopt this exact colour. This is very much a blue-green. Some very decent shading but again no noticeable sheen. Others are seeing sheen so perhaps it may simply be a lighting problem here.
Drying times were better with this one, completely dry somewhere between 10 and 20 seconds. Paper is again Rhodia.
